I have noticed some photos have this glowy/dreamy light effect. I am not sure how this is achieved (shooting/editing??). Does anyone know? I have included an example. enter image description here

  • photoshop: duplicate image, add blur, set opacity – jhamon Jan 11 '18 at 13:13
  • old school: soft focus filter bhphotovideo.com/c/product/609131-REG/… – Jindra Lacko Jan 11 '18 at 15:37
  • Might just be me, but it looks like the contrast on this one was lowered as well. Saturation seems a bit less too. – OnBreak. Jan 11 '18 at 17:17

An OOOOLD trick: use a womens nylon stocking and clamp it over the lens.

  • The "granny" style ones that only came up to about 3/4 of the way from the ankle to the knee were easier to use and stuff in the bottom of your camera bag. – Michael C Jan 12 '18 at 5:46
