Christmas Shaped Bokeh

Bokeh: the out of focus area of an image

How it's done:

Focus on something close
Place your homemade filter in front of the lens
Snap your picture.

To make a filter:
Fold a recipe card in half. 
Cut or punch a shape out of the center.  

Night portrait mode (flash + long exposure)
The flash illuminates your close subject and the slow shutter speed allows the camera to capture the light in the background.
ISO 400
1/15 second
