|For a long while now, I've wanted to try bokeh photography. It's a technique in which you put a cover on your cameras lense and put a decorative hole on the cover - in this case a heart. It's such an easy figure to cut just by folding the cardboard and cutting a small piece out. Here's a picture straight from the camera. In the bottom of the page you will see the settings and a cropped version.|
|I'm making this post because from all of the bokeh how to's I've come across, no one ever showed the picture before they edited it. So I was always just wondering how you get a full image when most of the lense is covered. That's the question I needed answered when I began this project. So as it turns out YES you do lose some of the picture and you need to crop. HA!|
|So the way I made it is... I took a piece of black cardboard and cut a rectangular shape. Then I modelled it on top of my 50mm lense and taped it so it was circular. Using the circular cardboard I drew a circle on the cardboard and used that to cut out the shape plus four flaps to make attaching easier. From that piece of cardboard I cut a rectangular shape off so that I can switch shapes on the go. I just need to cut any shape on a rectangular piece of cardboard and tape it on.|
I used Canon 5D Mark II and the lense 50mm/f1.8 aka nifty fifty.
