Playing with Bokeh

by Kay~Kacey on 7/23/2010

Bokeh. I’m in love with it. Seriously.

Wikipedia (the expert on all things, all the time  :rofl: ) Defines  bokeh as the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.

I saw the light filtering behind this purple button flower and just had to play.

I kept moving around and trying to capture different angles and have the light surround the flowers in different ways.  I got down on my knees (down on my knees) and I began to shoot. (you KNOW you’re singing California Dreamin’ now, aren’t you???) :crazy: Anyway, SuperGuy had just spread some sand on the patio to sweep into the spaces between the stones. Nice. I have sand embedded into my knees permanently now. I sacrificed for you, I’m telling you.

Now that I’ve taken these and edited them…I realize I want to go out this weekend and get some bokeh shots without the flowers in them. Then I can use the bokeh shots as textures on my photos! So I guess I get to crawl around on the sand again…though I might take a towel out to kneel on tonight, I’m just sayin’

Have a great weekend, my blogging friends! Got out and catch some bokeh and share a link!
