Bokeh Filter Fun

Bokeh Filter Fun

One of my favorite little photography magic tricks is using a bokeh filter, which turns all of the blurred circles of lights into little shapes. I’ve made my own with black construction paper, but this time I created one using a blank disc that came with the Photojojo bokeh kit. I used a ume (plum) blossom hole punch that I bought in Japan to create this 5-petal shape. You have to set your camera on manual focus for this effect to make it blurry and out of focus. I used my Tamron 90mm macro lens on this cocktail ring. Fun stuff!





And here’s what the ring looks like with out the filter:





And here’s a little video seeing the “magic” at work:
