Fake bokeh effect tutorial

23 Favourites
My first tutorial - How to create a fake bokeh effect. When I found out what bokeh is, I loved it but unfortunately I couldn't create it with my camera. So I was experimenting and I discovered this way and decided to share it with you. I hope it'll be helpful. My camera is Sony Cyber shot DSC t2. The only thing that is important is that your camera has macro option. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. And I'm sorry for any spelling mistakes.
Full view it of course.
