Hello everyone. My name is maureen and I'm a bokeh addict. There. It's out. Bokeh was almost the sole reason for my desire for a DSLR. I wanted to be able to take those cool photos with the blurry background I saw on Flickr and blogs. Before I really understood what bokeh is, or how it's done, I knew that's what I wanted to capture. I couldn't wait to get a nifty-fifty [50mm f/1.8] as soon as I got my camera. I shoot with that lens ninety-eight percent of the time, and ninety-eight percent of the time I shoot f/1.8. I love bokeh background that's silky, smooth, blurred color bokeh and I love bokeh background (and sometimes foreground) that's full of those yummy bokeh circles (or hearts, if you have bokeh fun like Tammy). I'm also beginning to love the challenge of capturing bokeh people in a shot. Yep. It's an addiction, but judging by the Mortal Muse pool, I'm not alone. Oh how I have loved looking at all of the bokeh photos in the Mortal Muse Flickr group. *swoon*
TumblingRun's photo is a lovely example of silky, smooth background bokeh. I paired it with mine to show the same subject, Autumn leaves, brilliant Autumn color, evening light and bokeh done two ways.
As always, thanks so much for participating, for making it so difficult to choose just one photo each time it's my turn here.
