That was google. Sorry to the OP if I gave away his technique. I think lensbaby do have a special add on also for shaped bokeh.
it is ok..
With 7K plus post, you have been around photography for a while.. I have owned a DSLR for only about 1 ½ years now
I was sure many has seen this before and when I learned about the physical properties of lens and bokeh - well I was like wow. That is cool..!!
it proves there isn't anything new in photography.. just the ability to use the basic concept of light and composition to create a photograph (both good or bad)
Quoting Ernst Haas, “There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself…”
and I add to this with – “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence.''
When I get home I will measure the cut out and document the project..
Also I would like ask should we change this thread and make it “post your creative DIY bokeh?” or start one up? With the first post showing individuals how to do this project..
I would love to see others creative take on this cool twist.
