Win a Bokeh Kit: Competition

0Comments

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!

  • creative_pixel March 13, 2010 06:15 am

  • Subramanian P March 13, 2010 05:13 am

    Gives a 3D effect to the picture.

  • 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!

    here's a link to a few of my attempts

I want to learn how to take bokeh photographs and I am slowly trying to add to my equipment list and since I don't have means to attend photography school this website has provided me with an abundance of knowledge and information from professional photographers. I hope I win!!!!

  • Terri Carrillo March 12, 2010 03:51 pm

    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.

  • Ashira March 12, 2010 03:43 pm

    Wow a simple and well made bokeh kit! I surrender my own pathetic efforts of cutting my own bokeh shapes to this amazing kit! No more worries of jagged edges of my own shaped holes, no more using tape to keep the sheets on my lenses....I want this master kit!!!! Bokeh?

  • Laura March 12, 2010 01:22 pm

  • Faridila Widjaja March 12, 2010 12:46 pm

    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.

  • Moira March 12, 2010 11:32 am

    Lots of Bokeh shapes available at the moment due to the scrapbooking craze. Find a scrapbooker and you will have a huge supply of shapes to give bokeh photography a go.

  • Barry Scott March 12, 2010 09:03 am

    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 March 12, 2010 09:02 am

    Whilst I'm still coming to terms with my latest lens acquisition and thinking about how much time I'd have to come to terms with a new camera acquisition, if it happens, this kit could be the next thing to keep my photo interest in maximum overdrive.........frankly my new lens might need some help with bokeh as it doesn't seem to have any!!!!

    Love the daily articles...keep them coming!

  • Jerry Hanes March 12, 2010 05:57 am

    Looks more profesional than panty hose with a hole burned in it. Or trying to cut opaque sheets with nail sissors. not as messy as vasoline either.

  • Mandy Morell March 12, 2010 04:35 am

    Great! I'm a teacher in Alaska and my students have tried to do this with construction paper, and we haven't really gotten it to work yet. We would love to be entered into the drawing!

  • 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"

    I have never tried using Bokeh shapes but would love to try it out! Thanks

  • Valerie March 12, 2010 04:25 am

    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.

  • Annette Taylor March 12, 2010 04:25 am

  • Denise March 12, 2010 03:43 am

    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)

  • Navneet March 12, 2010 03:38 am

    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.

    Free advice, so take it as such: but perhaps your website would benefit from having more pictures of the actual product. Some exposures of the product being sold might help a lot.

  • Björn March 10, 2010 06:22 pm

    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?

    awesome! I like

  • Gail March 10, 2010 10:53 am

    I always admire other's bokeh pictures. These are no exception. Beautiful effects on each example.

  • Vasili March 10, 2010 10:51 am

    Bokehs were one of things that made me want a DSLR so bad. Custom shapes will be so much easier with this kit! :)

  • Vikki March 10, 2010 10:51 am

    Asked for one of these for Christmas and didn't get it! Would love to WIN one!

  • sui March 10, 2010 10:48 am

  • Stefanvds March 10, 2010 10:48 am

  • Manfred Westreicher March 10, 2010 10:44 am

    I was thinking of making my own kit but this sounds a lot better!

  • Alex March 10, 2010 10:43 am

    This should be an interesting tool for wedding and special occasions.... I'd love to give it a try.

  • Chelsea Rosenberg March 10, 2010 10:41 am

    ive been trying to get this off my list for 4 years now. i would absolutley love this

  • RobieD March 10, 2010 10:40 am

    Nice, I actually have string lights around my room anyway and already use them for bokeh effects.

  • Alec March 10, 2010 10:38 am

    Bokeh sounds like it could add a lot to a simple photo. Curious to try it out.

  • Matthew Walalce March 10, 2010 10:38 am

    I haven't even tried to take anything with a bokey effect to it, but I would love to learn how and start using it. I wonder if it would work with macros?

  • Joe Russo March 10, 2010 10:36 am

    Woohoo! Bokeh!

  • Damian March 10, 2010 10:36 am

    This is so neat! I have never heard of this before, but would love to start using it (especially if I win it!). It would be great if I won this contest; since I am a "poor college student" I have no extra money to purchase a kit like this!

  • Jamie Albritton March 10, 2010 10:32 am

    Seems like a great giveaway. Hopefully I will win one!

  • kwzane March 10, 2010 10:31 am

    Oh my goodness. I totally have to try recreating the R2D2 one. SO COOL.

  • Robinn March 10, 2010 10:22 am

    I have always been a fan of bokeh. Would be really nice if i could get my hands on the magic kit .

  • Caroline O'Hagan March 10, 2010 10:18 am

    Great tips- bokeh is amazing - once you know how, its hard not to sneak it in to all your shots!

  • Ed_K March 10, 2010 10:16 am

    Sure would love to win one of these kits to play with!

  • Martin Barabe March 10, 2010 10:15 am

    This is a fun thing that really adds to a picture, i have seen some explicit bokeh aplications with some of my contacts on flickr and is something i will try one day. It is nice that someone took the time to create a kit for everyone's plasure to use.

  • Funkmon March 10, 2010 10:11 am

  • Marcene March 10, 2010 10:10 am

    I've just cut out black pieces of construction paper and used tape to keep it on the lens. But this looks like it will stay on much better!

  • Dev Wijewardane March 10, 2010 10:09 am

  • Pamela March 10, 2010 09:52 am

    Despite being a very beginner photographer, I have become obsessed with creating bokeh within my photos. (I blame it on all the amazing photos I've seen online with Christmas lights in the background.) I would love to win this kit to help me perfect the approach.

  • Jhoman Reodica March 10, 2010 09:49 am

    Amazing how a little creativity goes a long way.

    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 :)

  • Edison See March 10, 2010 09:24 am

    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

  • Nicole March 10, 2010 09:23 am

    Your daughter is adorable.

  • OeterB March 10, 2010 08:59 am

    Would love this! Love shaped bokeh, but hate making them myself. Only time I've had a chance was when a start shaped bokeh was supplied for the Canon5 comp in Aus.

  • Christine March 10, 2010 08:58 am

    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.

  • Alejandra March 10, 2010 08:47 am

    count me in!!!!

  • SJlarue March 10, 2010 08:45 am

    it would be great to have!

  • glen March 10, 2010 08:03 am

    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.

  • Jennifer March 10, 2010 08:03 am

    Pick me! Pick me!

  • 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.

  • Cameron March 10, 2010 08:02 am

    Looks very cool.

  • Steve March 10, 2010 08:02 am

    Looks awesome! I'd love it...please?

    This is a great kit and I hope to get one soon.

  • Jenny March 10, 2010 07:59 am

    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 March 10, 2010 07:59 am

    I was about to cut up some cardboard for the effect. this little kit will be ideal!

  • Dave March 10, 2010 07:59 am

    What fun bokeh. Great idea.

  • Mihaila Catalin March 10, 2010 07:57 am
