Filter Name


I am looking for the type of filter I need to buy for my 35mm SLR that give the fuzzy effect around the edges of a photo. This is used often in wedding photography.

  "Center Spot"
See Tiffen's version at http://www.tiffen.com/filters.htm

or Hoya's at

You can make your own with an inexpensive UV filter by applying a thin coat of vaseline to the outer portion of the filter.

  P.S.
Hoya has several versions, Center Spot, Soft Spot, Misty Spot, Rainbow Spot, Duto. See http://www.thkphoto.com/products/hoya/index.html under "Special Filters" rather than the .../sdef-01.html link I used in the post above.
