Membuat Bentuk Pada Bokeh

Creating Shapes in Bokeh

KEE friends must have seen bokeh, but the shape is different from circular or polygonal, some are star-shaped, heart-shaped or other shapes. So how do you do it?

It's quite simple, KEE friends. Ingredients you need:

  • Black paper (thick enough)
  • lens cap
  • scissors
  • cutter
  • pen

It's really easy!

  1. You can make a mold of your lens size with a lens stamp on black paper. Be careful not to let the diameter you draw be larger than your lens cap.
  2. Cut out the circle, then cut it out again, slightly smaller than the first size, approximately 0.5 cm smaller than the side of the current circle. You can leave a little part of the black paper to make it easier for you to take the paper from the lens.
  3. In the center of the circle, draw the shape you want for the bokeh. The appropriate size is around 5-20 mm, not too big or too small. If it is too big, the effect will not be visible, if it is too small the light will be blocked by the black paper so it will become dark. You can try several times until you get maximum results.
  4. After that, cut it with a cutter following the shape of the image you made

5. Stick black paper on the front of the lens. Adjust the settings on the camera and use the largest aperture. Because a lot of light is blocked, you can use a low shutter speed. You can also use a tripod to make it more stable. For a dramatic effect, you can try at night with a short focal length (close to the subject, far from the background).
