Win a Bokeh Kit: Competition

Today we’re giving away 6 great little kits to help you create some stunning Bokeh effects from Bokeh Masters Kit. Thanks to Udi Tirosh (follow him on Twitter here) for this offer. Here he is to introduce the concept behind the kits and to introduce the competition.

The Challenge

A while back DPS had an article about creating and using shaped bokeh as a creative drive. Taking that concept forward I built a product called the Bokeh Masters Kit which enables creating “bokeh images” in an easy and convenient way.

When I launched the Bokeh Masters Kit I needed to create a strong image which will clearly show how distant blurred dots become shaped bokeh objects.

Process and Setup

To make the bokeh effect work you need to have some highlights that you can take out of focus. Each such out-of-focus dot takes the shape of the hole on the bokeh adapter. A common way to create those highlights is to use LEDs. This is a great option as LEDs are small, cheap and can be bought in a “string form” for holiday’s home decoration. Indeed I started with LEDs. My first images were of my little daughter using a Christmas LED string as backdrop.

I loved the effect, but wanted something more. I wanted hundreds of little distant blurred dots to become hundreds of little shapes.

While working on another project I noticed that wrinkled tinfoil reflects many, many spots of light. This is just what I needed. It took little time to create a screen made from foam board and tinfoil.

I used a very simple 2 strobe setup to take the image: one flash with a CPU cooler gridspot was placed above R2D2 to light it from above. Another gridded strobe was set on the floor for fill and spilling some light on the background.

This worked out pretty nice and I got literally hundreds of little envelopes.

I did a second image with the same concept only using hundreds of tiny streetlight people.

The Giveaway!!!!

To kick things off, DPS will be giving away six Masters Edition kits.

  • Myra

    March 13, 2010 06:23 am

    I see you have alot of entries for this but i thought I would post my name and give it a shot. We had 13 inches of snow in our area of Texas this year and I got some fantastic shots of something I would have had to go up north for. I used my manual 50mm 1.2 on my Nikon and most of the shots at night were my favorite. I can only imagine the possibilities I would have had with a string of leds, this kit, and that mound of snow! Please enter me into the drawing! Thanks!

  • Linda

    March 13, 2010 05:00 am

    Cool! I tried this with a piece of paper and it was ok but then my 1 year old stuck his finger in the heart, and so I tried to start over but got frustrated peeling tape off my camera. The kit seems like a neat idea!

  • Fernando

    March 13, 2010 04:53 am

    I have tried this a few times, but all I have been using is a peice of cardboard with a shape cut out in front of my lens. I can tell you, its quite hard to hold the camera and cardboard and take the shot at the same time! One of these things would be great!

    Amazing! I'd love one of those!

  • Digvijay Ghosh

    March 12, 2010 04:25 pm

    Really cool... gives a totally different depth to any simple potrait/ action shot.... However, the background needs to be absolutely clear for it to have a good effect....

  • Yong En

    March 12, 2010 04:04 pm

    AWESOME! absolutely love bokeh! they really add more excitement to a otherwise normal photo. having those filters would be alot of fun!

    When my oldest son was born, my mom bought a kit that had a bunch of filters. She could make some real interesing pictures of him. SOme showed him in different formats and some just showed his face all over the picture. I wish that I could find this filter kit that is hidden somewhere in one of her closets. I would like to have your filter set, they would make interesting backgrounds for pictures. If I don't win it, maybe soon I can afford to buy one after I get back to work.

    Bokeh was one of the reasons for me to have my own DSLR camera, coz for me all the pics really look great with bokeh. I finally bought my first DSLR a month ago and start taking pictures and when I saw this article and saw what Bokeh Masters Kit could do I was...wow! I want this Kit!! Hahaha! Well, really hope that I can win this Bokeh masters Kit. Thanks to Udi Tirosh and DPS for sharing this.

    I think the Bokeh kit is brilliant! I had to make my own after your article last year, it not too suprisingly... it was very close in design. Yours is not exactly the throw-away mine was, so it would be sweet to have a set-up like this for the future!
    Thanks Darren! You are a huge inspiration to us all!

  • Jill

    Like the tin foil idea. I have material full of sequins could this work as well?

    I would like to try the Bokeh kit. I love the photos

  • Dália

    March 12, 2010 05:42 am

    I tried it once, in a very traditional way, with black cardboard! But I didn´t had the same effect as good as you! =) Thanks for the tip!

  • Kelli

    March 12, 2010 05:42 am

    That's a nifty trick! <3

  • victoria roach

    What a great little kit!

    I've being playing with a star filter and bokeh - but when the light, say a candle flame, is out of focus, you can see the etchings on the filter in the blurred light...

    This is a cool giveaway

  • Siouxsie

    March 12, 2010 05:30 am

    These are a really neat idea - used in the right way, I can see this style really taking off for children's portraits to help add whimsy to an otherwise plain shot.

  • Frank Veprek

    March 12, 2010 05:29 am

  • David Florida-James

    March 12, 2010 04:35 am

    What a great idea - opportunities abound for interesting images. Would certainly like to win one of these kits -if this fails then I guess it's a case of "out with the credit card"

  • Leslie

    Wow! I had never heard of using a Bokeh kit before. It really creates a interesting effect. I love to learn new things and try out different ideas. I'm a beginner and its awesome to see the amazing photos others have and finding out how they did them. I especially like the idea of using the Bokeh for macro. I love taking macro shots.

    I could definitely use these. I have tried and tried to make my own but they never work out for me! I just get what looks like a lens that is partially covered. I have made the shape as small as a couple of mm and have ensured that it is centred. What am I doing wrong?
    (my lens is Sigma 17-70 mm f/2.8-4.0)

    I've always wanted to try something like that but haven't because I don't know how to compose photos using them.
    However, I do love it when you manually focus photos and get a circular bokeh behind you object.

    Bokeh is a Japanese word. Bokken is a wooden practice sword in Japanese. I read here ( http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2750 Martin Bailey ) that bokeru means to become senile, fuzzy with age... wooden headed? to blurred images? to my very own...what was I commenting on again?

    Looks like lots of people are interested in this giveaway! I'll have to get lucky, but you never know, its worth a try!

    I love the shaped bokeh effect, but I have yet to have a successful shoot, my macgyver skills have failed me! Anyway, good luck to all :)

    these are some of the techniques that we can use to take pictures without exaggerating fancy equipment. the focus is still the subject.

    i wish i can learn more using other shapes

    I've been meaning to give shaped bokeh a go. Reciently got a nifty fifty to try this out but i can't seem to think up an origional enough shape to do it. That would set off a subject I have available. More thought is required.

    have used the star shaped filter that came with the eos 5 photo contest kit. fun but frustrating and takes some time to get it just how you like it.

  • Elme

    March 10, 2010 08:03 am

    I tried to make one over Christmas (all the tree lights, you know, I couldn't resist...) but it failed miserably because I only have a standard kit lens :( I have *just* bought a nifty fifty and would love to try it again, perhaps without all the hassle I went through last time! Really cool kit, Udi.

    I made my first bokeh photo in 2007 when I read an article about it in the Photojojo newsletter. This was the result:

    [URL=http://img708.imageshack.us/i/img08773.jpg/][eimg url='http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/4421/img08773.th.jpg' title='img08773.th.jpg'][/URL]

    It would be great to switch from black cardboard to something more durable though :-)

  • Amy
