The Best 6 Ways To Create Your Own Bokeh

bokeh_heartLittle more than half a year ago, I published a guide to create your own bokeh. This guide provides a simple technique to shape the bokeh of the unfocused elements in your picture.

Here are the best 6 pictures that employed this technique, courtesy of DIYPhotography readers. I was glad to find creativity both in the shapes used (guess what? Hearts wins the jackpot) and the creativity using this technique.

Picture 1 by joy_sale – use interesting bokeh where not expected – a nightly portrait.
