A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
One of our favorite words as photo-loving folk is the word “Bokeh.”
Not only is it fun to say, but “Bokeh” adds incredible depth and interest to our photos â€“ creating blurred, out-of-focus areas in them (“the Fuzzy”, we like to say) that can change a regular ol’ snapshot into a photograph.
We just found a tutorial that helps you shape the Fuzzy into different shapes â€“ stars, hearts, butterflies… Imagine how cool it is to see hearts appear in your portraits, almost magically!
It’s actually easier than you think â€“ simply make a fake lens hood from black construction paper, then cut a hole out of it in the shape you’d like. When light reaches your lens through the shaped hole, it’ll then take on that shape â€“ whether its a star or a heart or whatever!
We feel like a giant anvil just fell on us from the sky, ala a Looney Tunes cartoon â€“ we’re seeing stars everywhere with our photos now. We love it!
