Hi 3eka, no, it is certainly not “wrong” in any shape or form. There may be a slight unintended pun to that comment. Technically, 5 blades will produce a pentagon bokeh, unless wide open. And aesthetically, whatever shape one prefers in terms of bokeh is purely stylistic, and personal choice. There is no right or wrong regarding bokeh style or shapes. And run away from anyone who tells you different. :) There should never be limitations when working as an artist. I film the majority of the time with anamorphic cinema lenses, and the bokeh with many of my anamorphic scopes are very stretched and oval. I like to call it impressionist style. It’s the style and preference I choose when DP’ing my own work. So, again, nothing is ever wrong with the style and look you choose, and nothing wrong with pentagon bokeh. Hope this helps my friend!

Rule of thumb 3eka when you are exercising your shooting skills, Shallow Depth of Field and Bokeh Effect do not make for a good shot. Shallow DOF and Bokeh concern is a technique that is beyond abused, extremely overused, and misunderstood these days, more than ever. The end result becomes more about “oh that’s cool looking”, versus, what does your shot say and why am I composing the shot this way. Just some quick tip personal advice. :) In terms of lenses, from someone like myself who has every lens under the sun, Canon is great, however, Nikons and Canons are extremely overpriced for the most part. You will find just as great results from a brand like Rokinon/Samyang lenses in the 50mm. Happy Filming!

PS: You can come to Colombia. It is not Europa but it is cool and you know that our countries are like brother :D

It’s funny because I’m actually planning on moving to Colombia, me and my girlfriend am excited about this, we are literally to one bus drive to reach the frontier and get out of this hell of a nightmare.

And you know I was actually looking your profile up :D I saw you on a thread about Spain people here on Videohive and you said you are Colombian I was wondering in asking you a couple of questions about living there and such and now you tell me this! man what a coincidence.

Everyone has their reasons for creating for this community (money, knowledge, freedom). My reason was to be able to virtually connect with other artists around the world who have the same appreciations I do in this field. I had enjoyed seeing the positivity this community brings and I found that to be very endearing.

Reading _Terry’s reasoning for creating here really blew my mind and made me realize that there are so many reasons artists here produce content. So, be it to someone’s standards or not, creating content for Envato can truly transcend the reason of just wanting to make money. I’m a storyteller at heart so reading _Terry’s reasons for creating, or a quick reference to the country’s “suffering” FXNinja’s, really touches home for me. It makes me appreciate the artists and community even more than I already had.

Certainly the most difficult content I have had to film due to the tragic situation that befell. I certainly plan on just having the story tell itself, not forcing with traditional interview bs, and I had always filmed moreso like a fly on the wall, and tried to capture whatever I was filming, like I would block a traditional movie. Thank you! Truly appreciate it.
