How to create shaped bokeh in your photos

This is not an original post but some fun for me this season!  I actually first learned of this here.  I seriously LOVE me some bokeh. The dreamy and creamy effect in photographs just is so much fun to me.

Ready to learn how to shape your own bokeh?? Let’s go!



  • I used my 50mm 1.4
  • Cut a heart in about 1/2 inch on a piece of paper
  • Attached with tape to my lens, and had fun!

My picture has a pink tint due to the only color of paper I had available! Black would let you have no color at all!

Remember to keep your custom shape smaller than your aperture!
