    Default DIY Bokeh

    Tried it out after reading this thread: http://forums.clubsnap.org/showpost....14&postcount=9

    Maybe everyone can post here to share their creations.

    To kick it off, here's mine (just made it so could only test it out with my Christmas tree lights):





    Fun stuff!

    35mm F1.4L on a 20D. Just followed the tutorial and made that "cap" thingie with a cutout of the batman symbol. Fun stuff. Can't wait to try it out on the orchard road lights.

    my try...i know it looks like crap...but i just saw it and thought i would try it out..used my kit lens and was difficult to cut out a small heart shape using scissors..the paper would bend and cause the edges to be like sh*t... focal length 55mm and apert wide open..

    any one have any advice to spare?? thankss

    hmm.. I think those stamp-out cutters would work nicely for this purpose, but $$..

    For my batman symbol, what i did was i got an image of the logo off the net, printed it out on a piece of paper, and then used that as a template to cut out the shape on my lens cover. I also used a pen-type cutter instead of the usual penknife/boxcutter because it allows for much better control. Something like these: http://www.lion-office.com/nt/d.html

    Catching stars

    Believe it or not I intended for #1 to be a Xmas tree but well.. I didnt cut properly so it became more like an arrow. Lol.

    Have yet to test it out in orchard rd where the bright lights will make your bokeh really distinct.
