Fun with Bokeh
Bokeh is the blurry unfocused shapes that appear in the background of a photo when you use a lens with a wide aperture like a 50 mm or macro lens that can stop down to 1.8 or so. Christmas time is an excellent opportunity to play with this technique as most of us have holidays lights as a part of our indoor décor. The Christmas tree was my light source yesterday afternoon as I played around with various items. I used my macro lens for these pictures. Later on this week I am planning on posting another set of pictures that I took with my lensbaby and some disks that create shaped bokeh. I hope that you check back to see. I have to thank Isabel LaFrance for the mosaic template and Coffee Shop Rita for the sleighbells paper for the background.
I will be joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. See you there. Valerie
