Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a Bokeh texture, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
Bokeh is the name given to these out of focus discs of light and these tend to…occur in the background of your image especially if you're working with a…shallow depth of field.…There are numerous ways that you could create bokeh digitally;…I am going to share with you a technique that I adapted from various different…others and what we are going to achieve is something like this.…Bokeh with a crunch and I say with a crunch because if we look at these discs…of light they actually have texture in them and that texture is derived from…this Background here, this background texture of ice and if I turn on the…different discs especially when you put them against a black background, just…to see the large ones.…
You can see that there is actually the texture of that ice within those rings.…So we are going to create something like this, I will say something like it…because we are going to get slightly different result, I will probably use…different colors and it's going to be slightly different but just as good.…
