DIYP BMK-ME overview

  • 1Description

The Bokeh Masters Kit turns light into shapes. By definition, "bokeh" refers to the nature of the blur that can be created using light. It refers to those parts of the image that are out of focus - generally those sections of the photo that are found beyond the measured depth of field.

You will see the effect most pronounced when using point light sources such as candles, street lights, flashlights, etc. However, you will find this system works in most lighting situations. Just remember, it is designed to be most effective with areas of your image that are out of focus.

This kit contains 21 custom shaped discs including stars, hearts, a happy and sad smiley, animal icons, sports icon and several signs. In addition, you receive eight blank discs with which you can cut your own patterns. Using the included holder, you mount it on the lens, insert your selected disc and shoot your portrait.  In this way, you can tailor your special effects to your portrait needs. The Bokeh Masters Kit is designed to work even if it is not 100% flat to the lens

Generally speaking, the "Bokehtinator" works best with lenses of filter size up to 62mm, and with apertures of 2.8 or wider. However, the Bokehtinator may also work with other wide-aperture lenses of similar thread size. Testing is recommended.

Note: Other lenses that have not been tested may also work with the Bokeh System - performance testing is highly recommended

The kit will work with almost any wide aperture lens with a filter size of 62mm or smaller - Tested and works with the following lenses: Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 50mm f/1.4, Nikon 85mm f/1.8, Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-f/4.5, Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8,  Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, Canon EF 85mm f/1.8, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM, Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 (with vignetting)
Allows you to create your own special effect images "in camera" without having to rely on post-production software
Can be placed over a UV filter
For the wedding or party photographer, this kit offers you a marketing opportunity for creating images that other photographer may not be able to replicate
Allow you to turn a night scene or landscape into something completely different and unique

    Bokeh Masters Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspires Creative Thinking I honestly don't think there is more bang for your buck in the photo-accessory world than this Bokeh Masters Kit. Using this kit you can transform your images into something that breathes emotion either in subtle ways or dramatic depending on how you use the effect. The Bokeh Masters Kit is like a great paint brush to an oil painter, it's easy to get great results right away, but you can always find new ways to expand your mastery of it. You'll find yourself getting new ideas of how to use it, energizing your family portraits, still lifes, and even inspiring you to look at landscapes in a way like you never have before. I'm trying to think of something I'd change or improve if I could about it, but I'm drawing a blank. What a cool kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a product for anyone who is huge into both Nighttime and Experimental Photography. Personally speaking its one of the best things I've spent my money on recently and it really allows for some creative photos. The great thing about it is they give you blank filters to create your own shapes and images. If your really creative you will make your own definate buy for any photographer with a nifty 50 (50mm Lens) that has an f-stop of 1.8

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy! I was surprised to find I could get 25 different shapes in one. I was warned this was a toy that I would be dazzled by once and then I'd stop using it. I hope that's not the case. It's a really disposable kit, the components are plastic and very easy to break. They are fastened on to the camera with a rubber band (that's included!!). Great gizmo, great price. Haven't got bored yet. This set also comes with blank ones so you can make your own shapes. Haven't tried yet, but what a fab idea!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first filter set for my camera! I would definitely rate this product on a scale of 1 to 10 about a 9! It's very easy to use, and the instructions are very easy to understand, but the one thing I had trouble with was getting the pieces out! They come pre-cut but you still have to pop them out, and it's so easy to break one of the sides off of the main piece which happened to me and I had to tape it back on! I would recommend this product to anyone, but use scissors when taking out the pieces!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Kit! I really like the creativity that the kit brings into photography. It's simple and inexpensive, yet it allows a photographer to do what no other accessory I know of allows: turn light into shapes, and make a creative use of the Bokeh. I find it useful when teaching my students as it helps me demonstrate basic elements of photography in a fresh approach.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bokeh kit This kit does work, but there are a couple of things you need to know. First it works best with a fast lens. 50mm F1.8, f1.4. The second is the lights in the background need to be further away from your subject. A example would be taking a shot of a subject three feet in front of you with a fill flash for focus, with a string of Christmas lights 10 to 20 feet behind the subject matter. It does work, it just takes some practice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Fun, So Cheap, A Definite Buy! Overall, I'm super pleased with this product! I saw this effect on a few photos and was so excited to try it myself while shooting a friend's wedding. The kit is super easy to use and creates really fun shapes and effects on both video and photos. My only complaint is that the round disks can tear easily if they aren't taken out of the original plastic sheeting with care. But for the price, it's certainly worth it!
