DIY project: bokeh photography

On- Saturday, August 28

If you've ever wondered what that beautiful blurry light effect in photos is, its called bokeh. It's used to describe the out-of-focus areas of a picture and comes from the Japanese word meaning blur. There is a simple way to take your own romantic bokeh shots and all you need is a bit of black paper! Just cut a circle of card to cover your lens and make a hole in it the shape you want your little lights. Check out this quick step by step for how to set up your camera.
