Zoom h4n (1 of 1)

Cheap Christmas lights are an easy way to add bokeh to pretty much any shot. Place your Christmas lights 5 or 6 feet behind your subject, open your aperture up to f1.4, and you’ll be getting beautiful little sections of bokeh in no time.

These lights aren’t anything amazing, but you can get them in pretty much any color, they’re lightweight, and they put out enough light to add some nice bokeh to your image or video. I have a few of these around in red for Valentines day and green for Saint Patrick’s day. The splash of color and bokeh and really bring some interest to an otherwise boring shot of something like the Zoom h4n above.
