This precision laser cut Bokeh Prime Kit for your DSLR or SLR camera is made of durable plastic, and includes discs with different designs for shaping bokeh.Bokeh refers to the effect given by points of light being out of focus in your photoes. Usually, they take the shape of the aperture in the lens you're using, but by putting shapes in front of the lens, this Kit allows you to make bokeh into all kinds of interesting and strange shapes. By definition, "bokeh" refers to the nature of the blur that can be created using light. It refers to those parts of the image that are out of focus - generally those sections of the photo that are found beyond the measured depth of field. You will see the effect most pronounced when using point light sources such as candles, street lights, flashlights, etc. However, you will find this system works in most lighting situations. Just remember, it is designed to be most effective with areas of your image that are out of focus.
The Kit includes: - Universal bokeh disc holder (secures to almost any lens using an elastic band), suites 49mm - 62mm filter diameter lenses. - An elastic band, - 72 bokeh shaping discs, - User’s guide (English).
Bokeh works best with a short, fast lens that allows you to control shallow depths of field. The examples in this listing were shot using a 50mm, f1.4 Nikon prime lens. Using the included holder, you mount it on the lens with an elastic band, insert your selected disc and shoot your portrait. In this way, you can tailor your special effects to your portrait needs. The Bokeh Prime Kit is designed to work even if it is not 100% flat to the lens. Generally speaking, the Kit works best with lenses of filter size up to 62mm, and with apertures of 3.5 or wider. However, it may also work with other wide-aperture lenses of similar thread size. Note! Other lenses that have not been tested may also work with the Bokeh System. The Kit will work with almost any wide aperture lens with a filter size of 49mm - 62mm.
