I remember reading about bokeh manipulation but never tried it out – until now. I was running out of interesting square things so making my own seemed the best solution. I cut out a small square in the centre of a circle of paper, then cut the edges at intervals to create folds, and secured it over the lens with a rubber band. Square was too big the first time but the second attempt was just right. You can lose a lot of light with this technique as the end of the video shows. There’s something about moulding light into squares that makes you feel like you have superpowers… maybe it’s just me.
TASK: Create three ten second clips using square things in your house.
