Hello, I am trying to understand how this phenomenon can occur, In the movie '' Good Time '' of the Safdie brothers, I have noticed several times that the highlights that flare restore the source, not by a glow but by drawing of it. In the case of the example number 1 we see that the text in the window is present as a flare but that, it does not make a ring / point in flare but a reproduction of lettering neons. In example 2 the flare corresponds to the bulb pattern of the carousel. Can someone explain to me if this effect is due to a phenomenon of the used optics, a lens filter effect, or post-production? I am French mother tongue I hope that I managed to make myself understood. I thank you in advance.
Flares are common in music videos. You always see the coming in and out of the frame during performance shots. I know the concept to achieve them is to have a light moving in and out around the edge of the lens to create the flare. I know the lens build also controls the look of the flare. I have tried recreating this with a flashlight a few times, its ok, but I don't get the big beautiful look that I'm used to seeing. I'm curious if there's a specific type of light that's best to use to create these edge flares or not? Any best practice tips in recreating would be great.
