Captured with a Lensbaby 2.0 covered with a thin layer of plastic food wrap to simulate the new plastic lensbaby lens!

that's an idea. as long as it gives a soft look and enough flare on highlight it should work.

Hi Igor, with the plastic wrap over the 2.0 there definitely is a slight reduction in sharpness and colour saturation. This was perhaps not the best subject to shoot. I will try more experiments - jimmy

I do remember the days when we put Vaseline on the lens to get that effect and from what I remember it worked pretty well. However, that was about 30 years ago so I know there is a better way. Bubble wrap may just do the trick. Looking forward to that one!

enjoye!

Hi Joye, bubble wrap sounds neat to try. A lot less messy than Vaseline!
