So i was downtown indy working on a motor cycle shoot for a friend and did some other photography downtown late at night..

i want to share this photo of this wonderful couple. .

Marrissa and Alan. both are Purdue students and both madly in love with each other.. (they were the parking light shot couple) https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=715122

so for a cool shot this is what i came up with..

hand held @ 1/60 on my back.. ISO 500, Fstop of 2.0,
camera right speed light in westcott softbox 550ex @ 1/2 power. 7 feet away
with a second 430exII in alzo soft box camera left @ 1/2 for fill. 15 feet away

no photoshop was used to create the hearts.. don't you want to know how?

Questions were asked what lens and size of the opening i used..

Lens = 85L (but any fast lens will do.. just get your fstop to about 2.0-2.8ish)
opening i measured around 30mm's wide and 37mm's tall

Nice shot Pham. Great lighting and nice bokeh trick.

I know how you did it, I just want to know which lens and how big of a heart you have.

Bit of card in front of the lens with the heart shape upside down.

Think if you google "DIY" bokeh, there is a tutorial. I managed to get the same with dots on my laptop screen. Wasn't as strong and defined as these.

Great concept posted.

That was google. Sorry to the OP if I gave away his technique. :o I think lensbaby do have a special add on also for shaped bokeh.
