Is there such a filter that allows you to focus only on small part of the frame, (not necessarily in the middle, using a very wide lens (and working with f/stop around 2.8)?


any experience with any of these filters?



the scene is the following: frontal shot of the nurse holding a big siring, I want to focus on the big distorted needle in the very foreground, blurring the rest of the image, and being able to rack focus to the character. Can I do it with a filter on set and not in post?



thank you so much :)

Or a split dioptre, which is half a closeup lens. The rest of the filter mount is empty.

Or a macro lens which will focus very close then rack out.

The "very wide lens" you speak of may focus close enough anyway.
