is this from photoshop?
bubbly boken comes from reflex lenses
canon 50 f1.2
1st one is from a fixed aperture mirror reflex lens
yes indeed i mentioned that

I don't understand this thread. Are you asking something or telling us something?
pics 2 and 3 what causes that affect
why did you post 1 and 4?
Slow shutter, hold focus ring and turn body.
just for contrast
You realize that would just result in a blurry, OOF photo, right? Try it out.
#2 looks like a combination of the normal bokeh for that lens and a bit of optical illusion from the background. Actually, that flat-sided D or football shaped bokeh looks a lot like a Canon 50mm f/1.8 Mark I.
#3 is distortion that was most likely added in post using Photoshop warping filters ( ) but I suppose it could also be done using a lens with extreme barrel distortion or by shooting a reflection on a curved surface.
possibly from astigmatism
have done, and it works...with flash anyhow.
I see this a lot in shots from really fast lenses. Definitely not done in post-production
I love love love it
first is from a reflecting (mirror) lens yeah.. triplet arrangements of lenses like on old TLRs produce a very similar effect to #2 and #3. My lubitel 2 does it and I always
do you have a good example
not on me, but flickr has plenty:
so what do i need to do to cause this? is it a result of a particular lens or technique
same technique as regular bokeh + old ass lens.
those shots were taken with one of the versions of:
you might also be able to get something similar with a lensbaby
Kind of a major detail to leave out, sport. Try it without flash sometime.
bumping an old thread, but stumbled across this small triplet lens group on flickr that has ongoing discussions about the benefits of triplet lenses (including the swirly bokeh) and a growing list of cameras with triplet lenses.
#3 is pretty sweet looking.
