You know that expression”you learn something new everyday”? Well today I’ve learned about 20! The most interesting has got to be this technique to create a really nice bokeh effect. Bokeh is the term for those bubbles of color that appear in photos when the background is super out of focus and their surprisingly easy to duplicate. Here’s the background I’ve been working on, and it only took me about 10 minutes (most of that was just creating the new brush tool)
I’m considering whipping up a quick “how to” for this. It’s so cool, and way easier than it looks!
