Since i got asked a lot how i do the shaped bokeh photos i decided to write a short journal about it
I won't write my own tutorial since there are already a lot of great tutorials out there and i do the absolutely same thing
First some "normal bokeh" tutorials :
- aperature as big as possible -> small number ( i use the canon 50mm 1.8 )
- some sort of light to create visible bokeh ( e.g. christmas lights )
- put the main subject as far away from the lights as possible
How do you get the bokeh in special shapes?
formula for the size of your hole :
focal lenght / aperature number = size of the hole in mm
example : 50mm / 1.8 = 27,28mm
( it's always better to make it a little bit smaller )
Don't want to cut The shapes out yourself?
Any more questions? Please ask ♥
