I was too impatient to wait for a tutorial to be posted so I searched and found a tutorial at A Bit of Sunshine. Thanks Google!
Here are some photos of my dining room chandelier with my homemade filter. How cool!
To make these pictures I used my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens. I am no camera expert by any means. I usually just play with buttons, take tons of pictures, and hope one turns out.
For these pictures I used manual setting and unfocused the picture. I put the f-stop as low as it would go and played with the ISO and exposure time until I ended up with the above pictures. (ISO = 3200 and exposure time = 1/10 sec).
I had less luck trying out my homemade filter during the day. This is a rosebush out back. I did end up with a "happy accident" cute picture of my pup who was keeping me company outside.
I think this technique will be so neat for travel and holiday pictures.
These etsy shots are some great inspiration to keep learning how to perfect this technique!
