The fun thing about photography is that there are so many ways to do it. One of the most popular novelties in recent years has been the use of prisms and holding objects in front of the lens to create artistic blurs. Now, one company is helping photographers do it hands-free after releasing lens filters with prism-effects built-in.
After releasing a series of mountable prisms earlier in the year, BuffNerds host Jakob Owens and the team at PrismLensFX have now gone a step further and brought out the new filters which let you capture special effects in-camera.
The 3 different effects the lens filters create are:
- Prism: flare and bokeh effects
- Chromatic Flare: animorphic and streak flares
- Split Glass: light leak and fractal effects
The convenience of using these is of course that they attach to your lens, meaning you have both hands free to hold the camera. The images released alongside the announcement clearly demonstrate the many dreamy, foreground blur effects possible. They’re “variable,” meaning they can be rotated to change up the effect.
The filters will set you back $75 a pop, or you can save yourself $30 by purchasing the full set for $195.
