In 2008 I came up with a technique using the Brush Tool in Photoshop to create a digital bokeh effect. Then I mixed it with some gradient colors blended all together. The effect has become quite popular so I decided to upgrade a little bit the effect.
So in this tutorial, I will show you how to create a digital bokeh effect with hexagons. We will use the brush engine, patterns, blend modes, and basic filters to achieve this effect.
