I love me some yummy bokeh! I just want to grab a spoon and scoop it up it is so delicious. Do you want to know my secret for this photo? Dun dun dun.... TINFOIL! Yup I sort of cheated, but only because it is cold outside and I don't want to go searching for my own. Have you tried this? It is so much fun, all you have to do is get a piece of tinfoil, crinkle it up, wrap it around a piece of cardboard (a flattened cereal box is what I used) set it on a chair/table/ottoman next to a window and voila! Oh and if you want some extra bling spray the tinfoil with a water bottle.
Also as a note it would be best to have a macro lens or a lens with a really wide aperture to make this work. I used my 50mm f/1.4 lens in M mode, my settings: ISO 100, exposure 1/200, at f/1.4. A telephoto would also work, though tricky in the house if you don't have enough light. If you don't have any of those lenses, just make sure your subject is as far away as possible from the tinfoil to get some bokeh (and makes sure your lens is as wide, smallest f-stop number, as possible)
I love the bling'n beach bokeh from amycliff. It is so sparkly and delicious!
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful bokeh in the flickr pool! Bokeh makes me happy :) Until next time!
