Create Your Own “Bokeh” Photographs

Here’s a cool trick you can try out with your SLR camera. All you need is a large aperture lens (ex: 50mm / F1.8) and a sheet of opaque paper or cardboard. The out-of-focus dots that you see in theimage are known as “Bokeh,” a term which is derived from the Japanese word meaning “blur.”

1) Create a fake lens hood with the paperboard by cutting out a hole in the shape of your choice.

2) Place the hood over the lens and see how it looks through the viewfinder.

3) Set your camera to its lowest aperture value or bulb exposure. Have fun!

Cool~

Always reblog this for those who want to buy those overpriced Bokeh sets. Just DON’T.
Make ‘em yourself! Way more fun and 99% cheaper.

Did you all know that the word “Camera” comes from the Arabic word “Kamra” which means “Dark room”. The camera was invented by a Muslim in the 10th century, Ibn al-Haitham, an astronomer, physicist and mathematician. Through this invention, al-Haitham discovered how light enters the human eye to enable vision.
