I’ve talked a bit about bokeh in the past. I think its a fascinating effect. While it might not be appropriate for a lot of projects, it can offer a unique look. Eirik Solheim found a fairly easy way to create a DIY bokeh effect using black paper and tape. By simply cutting out shapes and placing them in front of the lens, Solheim achieved some gorgeous visuals with a little work and a lot of ingenuity.
