Week 30 by Becky


Judy and I have been trying to get the bokeh effect on purpose. With no luck. Well, here I finally achieved the bokeh affect on purpose. The key is to have your subject away from the lights with the aperture between 2.8 and 7.3. I used my 105mm macro lens here. The lighted Christmas tree was in the background. You can see the tree in the glass ornament. Now I will have to experiment with little cutouts to get different shaped bokeh.


  1. Very pretty and Christmas-like! Also looks a little like a microphone and lights...Vegas nightclub style! That's some big, bright bokeh! Nice! :)

  2. Yeh! You got big bokeh! Great photo! Love how you got the tree reflected in the ornament. Very creative. Can't wait to see your cutout bokeh photos.
