FIrst Bokeh! by Swazzette

FIrst Bokeh!

Great! I go a whole year and I can't get a decent bokeh shot...then when I'm finished with the project year...I shoot one at the beginning of the next. This was a beautiful ornament on a friend's tree that I shot while staying with them over the New Year's celebratory weekend and I just had to post it. Guess I should look at it as the start of better photos, eh? BTW - I told you that I wouldn't be able to get out of this completely. :-)
I'm soo glad you are back!! This is beautiful! :)

Better late than never - I don't know how to make a bokeh - is there a certain camera for this or a tutorial?

@miraries @fysmith @mandyrob - Thanks! Ha! I think it has more to do with the camera. I took this with my SLR with a 50mm 1.8 lens. It's very hard to get the focus where you want it...but is great when it works out. :-)

Hey Sue, did you happen to catch the nice little bit from WGN on Central Camera tonight? Looks like a fun place, I am going to check it out in the next few weeks.

@cattwoman - Sorry that I missed that piece on Central Camera. I walked over there this past summer and it's such a slice from the past. All dusty and dark with lots of wonderful old cameras.

@seattle - Yes, now and again. I am too hooked to quit! :-)
