Cool and inexpensive bokeh tip

I found a very neat and handy tip for creating your own custom bokeh on You simply need a black paperboard and a large aperture lens (I used my 50mm F1.8). I cut out a star shaped something and just went in front of my house to take some pictures… very sweet!

update: shot another set of star-shaped xmas-market bokeh pics. I guess I really like this effect (cause it is almost christmas).
