In post-processing it's hard to recover those overexposed glare parts, while the glare's shape and where it appears are hard to predict. But if you want to be able to control the direction and shape of glare? This may not be the same for your photo charm.

The material, shape and color of the tube placed in front of the lens will affect the photo effect, which is my favorite point - unlimited surprises!
