I'm super excited I accidentally learned about lens whacking while reading the interweb about the new Black Magic Pocket. Totally a serendipitous moment but worth the discovery. Anyway video is my first attempt at lens whacking.

What is lens whacking? Lens whacking is filming with a 50mm or lower lens not attached to the camera. Think of it as a way to capture light leaks and flares manually. I prefer this technique because the video feels very dreamy and the light leaks are consistent with the color of the light source in the video.
