    A pack of cigarettes is a start. Add in two 20-something men, each one wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses. Light the cigarettes. Scream "Action! ".And begin shooting. Within 5 minutes you will have what you need.

    Don't forget to bring a camera.


    And a lens.




    And either some film or a memory card.

    Definitely heed Sparky's advice... a camera and a lens will make your photo shoot go so much more smoothly, and film or a memory card, depending on the type of camera you select, will ensure that you have more than just memories from your photo shoot.

    I don't think he needs any of that....., It was probably taken with the new iPhone using a color film filter, a softening filter and adding in fake Bokeh!!! LoL

    Use a larger aperture or longer lens to put everything out of focus.

    It's likely a pre-set filter used to process the image after it's taken. It may be in whatever app the shooter uses. Maybe in the phone, maybe on a computer.

    There is no usual setting, there are too many variables. Anyone can give you a set of numbers, but they are worthless to you.

    Have you tried a similar shot? What worked and what did not work? What do you like or dislike about your shot? What settings did you use to get that shot?

    I generally just fiddle with the blue curve to get a 'vintage' look.
