So a couple questions, I pulled out my #12 shade home made filter this weekend to really give it a good try. I came out with some (IMO) good images. The one posted below is the only one I have with me at work.
So I had glued a ring adapter onto the glass, then screwed it onto the lens ... well that became a PITA real fast. My process was, set up, compose, AF, switch to MF, then very carefully scew on the filter and repeate a few times as I would slip and move the focusing ring just a little
Fast forward to this morning and I have a knock off Cokin P holder in my Amazon cart. Got me to thinking if I am going to use welding glass for a 12 stop (this is close to what I calculated out it out to), maybe I could use a less dark glass for something a little "softer" has anyone tried something not as potent as a #12 shade glass?
