I made a Bokeh Kit for my dSLR camera today. R2-D2 was my test subject, but will be using this with family closer to x-mas. Basically, it allows you to create special effects with background lights that take the shape of whatever you put in front of the lens. Currently, this is sized for a 72mm lens filter, but plan on resizing for other lenses.
Love it, love it.
That’s a little fancier than the cutouts I’ve been doing with cardstock
Ooh, I like!!!
This is so cool, and perfect for all photography during this season.
More examples, cmonn, you have that great snowflake!
I have a new polyhedral in the works, and should be done this weekend, so I’ll take pictures of that with the snowflake.
I am having trouble downloading these! I can not wait to try these! That is genius!
Oh, man. I think I got so starstruck that I was dreaming. I apologize. I think I misunderstood, thinking I was in a different area of the forum.
Nice clean work and great results! I wonder if black cardstock would work just as well for the grille, though it certainly wouldn’t be as durable.
That is brilliant!
Smacks forehead - something else I wish I had thought of.
What do I keep intending to try is lasering a pinhole in my lenscap for a digital pinhole camera.
What f-stop are you shooting at to get that much bokeh?
FYI, it’s against forum rules to ask people for their files. If they want to share, they will post them in the Free Files area.
Updated my response-thanks
I think this was f1.2 but this method work great at higher f stops. I would probably not go higher than f2.8, but it should work even higher.
For everybody asking how to setup their camera:
