    portrait by soft focus lens

    hi, my first time using soft focus lens. it is a bit old school honestly, however, the tone and the grain are not bad given from the trix and diafine. enjoy!

    That looks great. I've had an imagon mounted in an RB67 shutter for a while, but I never really used it much since I only have one of the three aperture disks.

    Nice indeed.
    I like the first photo in that series (also a bit of motion blur?) too.

    Can anyone recommend soft focus lenses for each of the 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 formats?
    If a lens could be used well for e.g. 5x7 AND 8X10 that would be good to know.
    Any lenses to not consider for one reason or another?
    Thanks

    I would like to recommend to use the famous Carl Zeiss SOFTAR I and II filters, which are available in almost any size through HELIOPAN. These soft filters are providing a very nice soft image by keeping most of the image sharpness. Not cheap but worth any Nickel.
