Guys, I think I ignored all my life that people are vain, more than I had ever expected.
So, I am setting up a small studio-to-go with very large softbox types like these:
And, of course, I want a soft lens... but I don't want to scratch Summicrons and Elmarits, and I don't want to invest a fortune.
But I have no idea what are the differences between:
- vaseline on an old filter
- a Softar
- a Duto
- other diffuser scrims
- special portrait lenses like the Imagon
What do you recommend for classy, slightly kitschy portraits with a 35mm SLR that make the model really happy and still look good enough that I don't have to ashamed of myself?
