This is from a feature I'm shooting right now. I used a very fine black veil material, similar to the one posted by Mr. Mullen on the first post. I used it in front of the lens.

Nice looking shot Rodrigo! Love the CA that's affecting the foliage, gives a real Annihilation vibe to the shot.

Planning on shooting with rear nets and wanted to share some learnings after testing:

 

•Every lens make and focal length reacts differently to rear nets. I tested supreme primes against masters and ultras. I found Ultras to yield the best results in my testing whereas the masters and supremes i tested revealed the nets pattern more easily in their bokeh. I'm taking the advice given in this thread and planning on mixing classic softs and glimmer glass when nets become too visible in scene.

 

•I've tried the snot tape route and found it very difficult to control the net and its distribution as well as replicate a density of net. A better solution for me has been to use a keychain ring and slowly pull the net into the ring as you would a key until you've filled the center of the ring. This parks the net and allows you to make the spread of the net very even. The standard keychain ring is also pretty close in size to most rear elements and allows you to reuse and achieve reproduce-able results.

Good to know!
