I’ve seen pictures online of innovative bokeh shapes (the blurred lights in the background that can sometimes make pictures magical) and I’ve always wanted to try one.

Well I finally got around to scoring some black paper which is what I used to make my stencil. The first one wasn’t cut quite right so the heart shapes were a little fuzzy but I think I got it acceptably right on my second try.

And then I took the picture you see above of our Christmas Star.

It was photographed with the 50mm 1.8 Canon lens.

Pretty cool huh?

I love it when a DIY project comes together.
