Bokeh in Paris

December 27, 2012

Bokeh is the Japanese word for blur. It is how your lens renders the points of light in out-of-focus areas of a picture.

The shape of the bokeh depends on the shape of your lens. So if you attach on your lens a piece of cardboard with a hole in it, the light will follow the pattern of the hole before hitting your lens. This is how to custom shape your bokeh.

Best results at full aperture (here f/1.8), to have the largest out-of-focus area.


Frozen dragonflies

I discovered macro photography with my first camera, a bridge with a super macro mode (with a min focus distance of 3 cm). I’m missing that immersion in the tiny world, now that I am shooting with a DSLR… and no proper macro lens. However you can cheat the macro mode. Just full zoom in and get as close as you can.

Welcome to macro for the poor!
