I’ve been playing around with bright lights and camera lenses to produce a range of realistic vibrant bokeh images that can be used as backgrounds to your designs, or overlaid onto photographs to add realistic retro style light leak effects. This free set contains 30 high resolution JPGs, each with a unique spread of bokeh blurs in a variety of colours. Unlike the digitally crafted alternatives, these graphics have an extra level of authenticity with natural blends of hues and a touch of ISO grain.
Use the colourful bokeh flares as backgrounds to form the foundation of a design, or paste them on top of a photograph and change the blending mode to Screen to see how they can produce a nostalgic retro mood. Being standard JPG files at 3264x2448px means these resources are compatible with all image editing software.
