These images were all shot mostly out of focus by using a combination of a slow shutter speed and manual motion blur (read: me moving my hands up and down either on purpose or accidentally on purpose). I then transformed them in Photoshop by using the Alien Skin product Bokeh2 (you can learn more about my use of Bokeh2 by viewing CM Monthly Challenge:Shallow Depth of Field or CM Monthly Challenge: Motion Blur). This is NOT a sponsored post for Alien Skin products but I do use them and find them quite helpful to my artistic workflow. Of the many different bokeh options available to Bokeh2 users, is the creative aperture selection menu.

Since the toning is warm and modern (though inspired from vintage film) I selected the triangle creative aperture option.
