Want a photograph with this unique bokeh?
It’s easy and cheap to do, without any complicated editing in Photoshop, without any expensive filters, and without the need of a high-and camera. The only tools you need are a wide-aperture lense ( I used the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 Ais) and your finger. Yep, your fingers 🙂

Set the lens at its widest aperture.
Place 2 or 3 fingers in front of the lens, with a bit of space between the fingers enough space so as not to cover the lens completely.
CLICK!!..and you’re done. Simple as pie 🙂
