    Yes, paper, glasses, bottles, mesh, speaker grills, cd cases, server doors, inside microwaves and a myriad of other things.

    Many years ago, at an evening barbeque, I shot guests through the bonfire flames, to see what sort of effect that produced. When I sent the roll of film to Bonusprint, they returned it with that negative unprinted, assuming it was a faulty exposure, and I had to send it back again with an explanation and a demand that they printed it! The result was mildly interesting, not spectacular.

    But I don’t hold items close to the lens for effects - I have enough trouble trying to shoot through wire fences on occasion, so I voted “No, I like my images to be clear” in the poll.

    Strange options. Almost as if none of us would do it deliberately! I do!

    To be completely accurate I have printed images through a fine grid to produce half tone prints for use on a printing machine. I did work but not terribly well because the spacing between grid and paper was critical and I didn't always get it right.

    I once used a broken bottle (broken on purpose) over my lens so I could have a view of a wine glass through the top of the bottle. Inside looking out.

    Way back in the olden days, even before Cokin Filters were born, we used all sorts of things.
    Nylon stockings were used to diffuse things, the wrappers of Cadbury's Roses and a favourite of mine was vaseline smeared glass.

    IIRC, if you didn't have any vaseline, Vic Blackman recommended 'nose-grease'.

    Nose grease was the recommended remedy for scratches on negatives, when printing. It never worked for me.

    :D
