YASBT – Yet Another Shaped Bokeh Tutorial

If you wanna freshen up on the shaped bokeh technique, Makezine has an thorough  video tutorial covered by a text article that you can follow through off-line. DIYP has a kit that takes the work out, but it always amazes me how quickly you can make one of those to win a another effect in your box o’ tricks.

If you are still having questions after watching the vid, (yea, you never know just how big that hole should be….) there are some great tips on the Removing The Mystery From The Heart Shaped Bokeh tutorial.
