Heart Shaped Bokeh Christmas Lights

Newer Older

I decided to pull out the old set of Cokin A Series Pre-Shaped Frame Filters I've had for many years, never really used them back then, but wanted to mess around with using them to shape bokeh. The fiter kit consists of several pre cut shapes to use with the filter holder.

I chose to use the heart shaped frame and see how it will look. This shape would be great for some Valentine's Day Bokeh.

I'm planning making my own shapes soon.

    Thanks Bong! I've been wanting to try this for awhile now.
    Thanks Brenda!
    Thank you Christine!
    I think so too Elke!
    Thanks for the invite...I'll look into it.
    Thank you Angela. Of the few shapes I have with my Cokin filter set, the heart was the best. I need to make my own now.
    Thank you Inna! ;)
    Eva. Here is a link to a DIY set of instructions to give you an idea. www.diyphotography.net/diy_create_your_own_bokeh
    I used a pre-made set of Cokin brand pre-shaped frames to shape the bokeh. The filter holder has about 3 or 4 slots to put the filter into, for shaping bokeh, you want it as close to the lens as possible.
    Thank you Jan.
    Thanks Roxanne!
    Thank you Nana!

    Here are the pre-made shapes that came with the Cokin A Series Pre-Shaped Frames. I bought theses well over 10 years ago.
    I guess you can still find them? I never really used these back them, I bought them because I thought they were neat. I believe they had other sets back them with more shapes, but only bought this set.

    The shapes fit into the shape holder (pictured on the larger heart...the one I used for the heart shaped bokeh image.) and that slides into the filter holder. The filter holder screws onto your lens just like filters do. This one is a 52mm filter holder, so it fit my 50mm f/1.8 just fine. Glad it did.

    I didn't know Cokin had these shaped filters. I should break out my old Cokins, all I need is an adapter ring.

    these are perfect to use with christmas lights. i've made a few of my own out of construction paper -- i just fit them onto my UV filter.

    this is a sweet shot.
