Creating Slick Video Flare Effect With Crystals And Broken Filters
If you are looking for an old vintage soft look for your videos, here is an interesting and fun idea. Use a crystals on top of a broken lens filter.
Lindsay Adler of Creative Live shares a pretty neat trick where she uses a broken UV filter as a mount for a cheap crystal. The light break and diffracts when hitting the crystal and creates a soft image and if you are lucky a reflection.
While we have shared a similar idea using a nylon bag, I must admit that this in-the-camera 70s effect has a different quality to it.
