and change it into whatever shape you want by superimposing that shape in front of the lens:

That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. I can hardly believe it works. He has a video showing how it’s done. What makes it even cooler is that the raw materials are Scotch tape and construction paper.

    Alien Skin has a new Bokeh program for Photoshop that is amazing. It has hearts as a shape for the highlights and I’ve written them to request custom shapes be available. The filter is practically perfect for simulating Bokeh for those of us with only one decent lens 🙂
