    I wanted to know what you guys thought. They look actually blurry, with smoke, except where I cut a hole for some of the shots.

    What do you think? I don't want to spend money on a filter I'll only use once (not to mention i didn't like any at the one store I went to), not to mention being unable to addord it.

    I want to do this for portraits...sort of. I do not want to give more info because I'll jinx myself.

    I bought a pink pair of nylong, didn't try it out though. I wonder if there will be a difference.

    This pair wasn't very sheer. They were 2 dollars for a pair and for children, but they still ran easily. There wasn't any white pairs for women. I wonder if a tan pair would work? I wonder what black will look like?

    any suggestions/comments go ahead and spit 'em out.

    Thank you :D

    Cool effect. Another trick to consider is the ol' vaseline. Cover the lens tightly with plastic wrap and a rubber band. Apply a thin film of vaseline and leave a small hole in the center. The Vaseline (petroleum jelly) provides a softer effect. The beauty is that you can tailor the effect buy using more or less gel or easily make the hole smaller or bigger.

    You would definitely enjoy a set of Cokin filters.

    How do you remove the petro jelly from your lens or UV filter?
