Traditionally, portraits are all about keeping the focus on your subject — but who said you had to follow tradition? In these portraits, luscious light flares and beautiful bokeh make the images appear more magical and unique. The most incredible shots happen when you’re brave enough to try something different.

On its own, the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens yields a soft focus, but when used with its Aperture Plates, you can change the bokeh shape into hearts, diamonds, snowflakes, or stars. Transform ordinary scenes into dream-like visual stories by framing your subject against a patterned background. Watch as the colors blend together to create a painterly effect.
