How to make bokeh by KatherineDavis How to make bokeh by KatherineDavis
Press download on the side to see a bigger res.

This is a tutorial for anyone wanting to know more about bokeh, its pretty simple, but in all honesty it is actually simple to make bokeh.

I also wanted to make one.. cos there is no tutorial on deviantart that i could find that actually explained how to make basic bokeh, if you make your own, you can use your OWN stock to edit in bokeh in your own photos, without having to credit someone else.

I didn't mention in the tutorial but you can make bokeh pretty much from anywhere, go outside in a sunny day and take photos of bushes, water, anything and experiment with the lense.

Your not an idiot for not knowing, you just haven't been told yet :)

Fav it, save it, use it :)

hello !
nice tutorial, but i don't get what you have to do after you made the heart shaped paper to get the colored heart on the picture, is it by using photoshop and stamping the hearts?
thank you

I need help ;__;
I used christmas lights in the background to get an bokeh effect. When I look trough the eye cup there are perfect bokeh circles. But on the picture it is just a bright area. What do I wrong? I used a stand so normally it is not because my hands were shaking.
