Christmas Tree Bokeh |St. Louis Photographer

Want to know how to make Christmas tree heart bokeh?  Follow the easy, homemade way to create your own.

Chose a wide aperture (small number such as 1.8, 2.0, 2.8) and set your camera to manual focus.  Point the camera to the tree (further away is better) and instead of focusing on the tree, turn your focal ring until the tree is out of focus. This is what you will get.  

And this is what happens without the paper on the lens.
