Premium Member David Mullen ASC Posted July 6, 2016 Premium Member Share Posted July 6, 2016 Today I was making a net filter for my little Sony NEX 6 camera. Bill Wages, ASC had introduced me to this fine black veil material you can get at wholesale fabric stores -- it's the lightest grade of net diffusion I've ever found, at least for front-mounted nets (I haven't tested rear-mounting yet.) What's also nice, besides it being a cheap and easily found material, is that it is fairly strong, you won't get a run trying to stretch it on a frame (and it's not very stretchable anyway.) I've used this material on 4x5 filter frames on a number of projects, for close-ups mainly. The only downside is that the weave is a simple criss-cross pattern that produces an X-shape flare around points of light; I would have preferred more of a honeycomb structure like Dior nets have. Here's the material: I glued it onto a cardboard ring made by cutting the backing chipboard on a notepad: Here's a shot of a truck in the street shot clean and then with the net. The strong glint on the truck makes the effect a little more obvious: 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
