Bokeh 07


There were lots of clouds in the sky early this morning. I thought I try something different. I picked a f2.8 135mm lens and mounted a flash with a small softbox on my camera. Then I photographed from the bottom up against the early morning clouds. This is what I got.

Enjoy and keep on working on your images!

Bokeh 06

I challenge you to continue last weeks exercise and try out as many lenses as you can to get a feeling for what kind of background blur (bokeh) they can create.


This image was created with a 200mm prime lens at f3.5. I just love the bokeh this lens can produce.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!


Bokeh 01

Bokeh is defined as a certain quality of the background blur. I know photographers that collect a kinds of lenses just for the purpose of creating different bokehs in camera. Of course you can create all kinds of blurs in post production. This week I challenge you to photograph for bokeh. Use a fast lens wide open and have some fun with this exercise!


I used an old 105mm Super Takumar lens at f2.8 to create this image. Enjoy and keep n photographing!
