Creative Bokeh -
"In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". (Wiki)
Premium members can also add their images to John Munro’s “Selective Focus” Inspiration tutorial (See HERE)
In simple terms, you need to decide on your point of focus and make sure it is pin sharp; select a large aperture (small f number); have your subject a distance from the background. More detailed advice is contained in John’s tutorial (Link above)
So…. widen your aperture and get shooting. Show us your images with Creative Bokeh
PREVIEW OF UPCOMING THEMES
February’s theme is probably self explanatory. It is something we do all day and every day….phones, letters, books, diaries, social media or simply talking to each other ... or is that a dying art?
We’re sure you can think of lots of examples.
The theme for March is "Blue". The obvious choice would be an image with predominantly the colour blue, but we are also looking for more creative thinking. Blue could depict a blue mood, someone looking sad or melancholy. We also call several of our sports teams "the blues" maybe you do too. Is it possible to capture singing the blues, a blues singer?
Start searching your archives or grab your camera we want the front page of PF to be blue.
