Shaped Bokeh Tutorial

by Michael Warf on Vimeo

"Bokeh" or blurred areas in a photo are achieved through very large apertures, F 2.8 or lower. By creating a fake lens hood with a shaped opening - we can control the shapes of the lights reflected back in our blurred backgrounds.

This tutorial shows some tips and tricks on how I create these shapes in my images. Hope you like it!
