    A lot of this discussion is useless without examples. For under-the-enlarger lens diffusion, results can look like this. This may be 'glow' to some.

    In my own work I have obtained what I would call 'glow' with a 50mm Planar 1.4 used at 1.4 with T-max 400.

    I also get what I call glow with a Minox and Lith printing:

    I think it's the separation in the midtones that really makes the difference.

    I just bought a Minolta MD 28mm lens for $10. The lens produces a surprisingly pleasing glow effect. I am not sure if the effect is due to some "defect" or the lens design. In any case, I find it cool! Here's a scan of the entire frame with a 100% crop in the corner.

    It's almost pointless to make a decision about the qualities of a print by looking at a scan on a stinking computer screen...Evan Clarke

    I'd use a Softar filter or a smear of vaseline on a skylight filter when taking the photograph.

    See Post #11. I guess that great minds run in the same path.
