The 4.5" Round North Star Filter from Tiffen creates multiple points of light, or "stars," streaking outward from a central light source. This filter comes in a drop-in mount for critical placement of the star effect.
This filter is especially useful for wedding photographers. It helps create a romantic, special effect mood which clients desire. North Stars are best used with a point light source such as a candle, match, flashlight or streetlight.
Tiffen's ColorCore glass is produced through a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision aluminum rings.
