The North Star Filter from Tiffen creates multiple points of light, or "stars," streaking outward from a central light source. This filter comes in a rotating 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.
The effect is produced by a series of thin lines etched into the flat optical surface of a clear filter
This filter has been so fun to play with I love the effect when there are lights in the photo. It's a quick trick for something completely differently when shooting at night, adding a magical touch of stars. It also adds a softer effect to everything else in the photo too. One trick I found was to take a photo with the filter on and then immediately after with it off, then combining the two photos in photoshop if you want parts of it crisp. Sometimes I like the soft dreamy effect too though. I'm so happy I bought this star filter.
