I think many of us can achieve Bokeh with a Macro setting. I usually do it unintentionally and love the results. I was rearing to go for yesterday’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday and then I read where Ashley said she wasn’t sure if we had read Kent Weakley’s post about Custom Bokeh or not but it was a good read. I read. I decided I needed to try it out. I made plans for when my son got home from church. It got cloudy. I played around with different shapes, different sizes and could not get Custom Bokeh using a bright light. Or the shapes I was cutting out. I tried for hours. I think I cut out about 10 different circles. Cutting circles, even with a circle cutter it seems, is no easy feat for me. I went out again today with the same circle I tried yesterday before it got cloudy. I will keep trying until I figure it out.
I wouldn’t mind wearing these all the time. But I am the type that won’t wear slippers out of the house.
When the boy won’t pose for you, you use the next best thing. I never knew her eyes were blue in the middle. But then again I wonder if it is just a reflection from the camera flash.
