DIY Lights and Filters
This video will help you create your own Black pro mist (BPM) filter. What does a BPM filter does? well, it helps you to control flares, lowers contrast and adds soft light – “pastel” effect. You can buy one from Tiffen (starting at $46 for 67mm version and going up to over $120 for a $82mm).
If you do not want to spend this amount of money – you can use – drums please… stockings! Not every type of stockings will do the trick – apparently the best ones are fishnet type stockings which with a little bit of playing around can get more or less the same result minus quite a few $.
