Star Filters and effects

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question,im sure you guys will let me know. ok so i always like special effects and the star filters mom used in the beginning, i bought a set 4,6,8 star filters fit for the len's i have, so my question is when my light is right will i see the special effects at work in the view finder? sorry if this is a dumb question.

Hi Terri, the amount of star effect depends on what aperture you use. The lower the F number, the more star effect you will get. Looking through the viewfinder will always show the maximum effect because you are seeing the lowest F number. The amount of light may also change your image. A candle flame shot at night will be much more " starry " than the same flame shot shot during the day. Oh, by the way, no genuine question is dumb........... Good luck.

Depending on the camera in use, newer Pentax DSLR's have a "Starburst" digital filter option built-in. This can be applied when taking the picture or later when viewing.
This means, not only can the effect be applied whichever lens is fitted, but previously taken pictures can be copied back to a card and re-loaded into the camera for further adjustment
