Flares in The Batman (3 replies and 3 comments)
I recently rewatched The Batman and noticed these strange flares the cars produced at night. Does anyone know how this effect was achieved? Was it done with a filter on the camera was it the imperfection of the lenses they used? I've attached pictures below 🙂
Looks like rain spray on the front of the lens.
Yes, looks like a heavy rain scene, the first photo shows a lot of water at the bottom of the frame resembling a flood. Have not seen the film but was this a hand held camera shot judging by the irratic flaring on the cars front.
No it was a static shot. I've attached the link to the clip, it right at the beginning.
Of course there was also the flaring of the anamorphic lenses used.
Thank you David and Mike for clarifying!
