I stumbled on an odd combination.
Hoya IR Cut + Tokina 11-16 V
It blooms red with double rainbow rings, and creates a star pattern at times.
I've been gradually messing with kit combinations to get a specific look. After the camera captures all of the necessary data to craft the image you'd like , you can bend and tweak things. Sometimes it's grain , color shifts , levels , sharpness or lack of, lensing etc.
That then gets combined with the framing and lighting approach, and styles of camera movement.
It becomes something of a recipe in your cookbook.
If you want to dig in deeper I recommend checking out the display prep demos by Steve Yedlin.
ALSO , if you'd like to know about the equipment that I use on the daily you can check it out here.
