TUTORIAL – star shaped bokeh effect

Merry Christmas everyone!
For all the creatives among you I made a tutorial on how to produce a star shaped bokeh effect. It is really simple.
 
WHAT YOU NEED:
– scissors
– cardboard
– pen
– your lens

 

1
trace your lens.

 

2
draw round edges.

 

3
cut out your tracing.

 

4
fold the edges.
5
draw the shape of a star into the middle of the cardboard.

 

6
cut it out.
7
place the cardboard onto your lens.

 

 YOU ARE DONE!
The stars will appear as soon as light points are out of focus. Here I have taken a picture of the chain of lights on our christmas tree.

 

You can make any kind of bokeh shapes. A heart for example.
