Re: Soft Focus Photography
Rich! Those black mesh filters are great, especially if you want a bit of softness without too much of the highlights flaring into the shadows. If they can't be found from the manufacturer that you noted, Tiffen has a line of "XF" filters that are similar. One of my favorite improvisations is simple black netting, I believe it is called "Tulle" in the fabric stores- it comes in different densities as well - very inexpensive.
That RZ is one of my favorite cameras for portraiture- I have mine digitized now and even for commercial assignments- it rocks! I also have an old 180mm lens for it- the lens easily screws out of the shutter and my 250mm Imagon (SF) fits right in.
I also have a 150mm SF lens for the RZ- works on the same principle as the Imagon.
