    Long ago I used a Nikon soft filter immediately below the enlarger lens with great results. I still have several photos on my wall and they frequently elicit a positive response from viewers.

    I've used the AN glass from a 6x6 slide frame for 1/3 to 2/3 of the exposure time. Best effect, IMO...

    If you diffuse thru the camera lens the highlights bloom; if you diffuse the enlarging lens the shadows bloom. Or is it the other way around?

    As Ken points out the effect is different between camera and enlarger. Because of this you really need to decide which effect you want before you take the picture.

    You can get both effects at an enlarger if you make an interpositive...

    Also, I have used smaller format slides to make larger format negs, i.e. using 35mm Astia to make an enlarged neg on 5x7 tmax. You can get some interesting tones.

    door screen in a filter holder. Tip from an old photog. You can cut holes for selective diffusion.
