    I don't understand this thread. Are you asking something or telling us something?

    You realize that would just result in a blurry, OOF photo, right? Try it out.

    #2 looks like a combination of the normal bokeh for that lens and a bit of optical illusion from the background. Actually, that flat-sided D or football shaped bokeh looks a lot like a Canon 50mm f/1.8 Mark I.

    #3 is distortion that was most likely added in post using Photoshop warping filters ( :hsugh: ) but I suppose it could also be done using a lens with extreme barrel distortion or by shooting a reflection on a curved surface.

    :dunno:

    I see this a lot in shots from really fast lenses. Definitely not done in post-production

    I love love love it

    first is from a reflecting (mirror) lens yeah.. triplet arrangements of lenses like on old TLRs produce a very similar effect to #2 and #3. My lubitel 2 does it and I always :bowdown:

    same technique as regular bokeh + old ass lens.

    those shots were taken with one of the versions of:
    http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Lubitel_2

    you might also be able to get something similar with a lensbaby :dunno:

    Kind of a major detail to leave out, sport. Try it without flash sometime. :mamoru:
