Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

For this I used a home made shaped filter. Just take a circle piece of black construction paper and cut out a shape in the middle. For mine I tried doing a star (haha...) but it looks like a starburst instead. Then tape it onto the lens... and you're set! For the star in the background I used an old christmas glittery ornament. The plant was a weird cut flower that was in a bouquet.. I'm not sure on the name.

This is what the filter looks like:

    Thank you:D If you go to the link above in the comments it shows the filter that I made with the cut out star. If I didn't have the filter on it would just look like regular round bokeh... but if you add a shaped filter... you can have anything you want!
