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 :)

Thanks! I'm totally saving up for that lens. Right now, the lowest aperture my camera will go to is 2.8. I think that might be why my bokeh isn't very smooth. (i've been adding blurs and more in photoshop to make them look nice...yet they still are a little noisy).

Kath, awesome Bokeh tutorial. I especially love the heart-shaped filter. I bet you could use those shaped hole punches that scrap-bookers use to make some interesting shapes.

Yeah you could, if you live where it snows you could make snowflakes.
