Bokeh Playtime


I am sharing the black and white photo Just Because I took it... 


My new Nikon is not as easy to take Bokeh with as my Canon Rebel. I decided to practice on the Christmas lights in the Nook and you know the rest of the story.... 
I went MadSnapper Crazy. 




I almost deleted this out of focus/bokeh but decided to PicMonkey it..

Above I added my Santa photo as a texture, played with saturation and added border and greeting.
Below I just added the greeting and the sleigh.

Love them all. Your nook is a photographic playground. In that first picture the stem on that piece in the center looks like running water to me.

Beautiful results from your photo playtime Sandra. Very sparkly and creative. I like the Santa one and the soft focus coloured lights on the stem of the glass.

Your right, the only reason I got the bokeh look on my It's a Wonderful Life ornament is because of my Rebel camera. I find that I can't do it on my point and shoot. I love the lights around the stemmed glass.

I love that B&W, and I love the first edit where you added the Santa...the other is nice, but just the Santa is my favorite.

Rebecca said...

I like the black and white.

Is there a cure for "Madsnapper Crazy?" You're so cute. Enjoyed your photos. That B&W is nice.
