If you’ve ever seen a photo with a shallow depth of field, you may find the background is very out of focus.  And you’ll often notice colorfully blurry dots around the photo.  That is called “bokeh”. This tutorial will teach you how to create custom bokeh in Photoshop, using a custom brush, blending options, and filters.
