I photographed this bucolic scene in the country, and I knew that because of the dramatic clouds and fields that I was going to make it look like a painting. My normal way of doing this, as an uber geek, is to feed it into Photoshop, and use an array of software filters.
However, it was raining that day, and I had my camera in a ziplock bag. I decided to shoot through the ziplock bag for a diffusion screen. It turned out fantastic. The result is above. It is a great way to get diffusion without Photoshop software image manipulation filters.
