Over on Make: Projects, our DIY library, Sindri Diego of Iceland shares a fun and simple camera mod to produce cool bokeh effects. Bokeh comes from the Japanese word for “blur,” and by making a cover for your lens, you can snap shots where the blurred lights in your image take on whatever shape you want. The picture above (taken in a mirror using the bokeh attachment) shows the attachment and the effect at the same time. Sweet!
Got a cool project to share with the community? Head on over to Make: Projects and make it happen! Thanks, in advance.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
