Has anyone else heard of this little photography term??
In short what I believe this to be is really really good crisp close up on an object and make some rad blur in the background. It's all messing with your Aperture and all that jazz.
I could totally teach photography with that kind of technicality.
You know...when I learn how to use actually use the darn thing. Like...all the buttons and manual. Oh yes I admitted that right here Brooke Snow! Me and manual are only part time lovers!
This isn't my best one but I love the colors...but see how it focuses in on one of the tiger lilies (those are tiger lilies right Mom?) and the rest around it is blurred.
So you Pioneer Woman readers out there may know Miz Booshay who does guest spots in the photography section on Pioneer Woman's blog.
She gave out a little assignment.
I'm suppose to upload it to Flickr but I have yet to become a member of Flickr and fall in love with it like so many bloggers are.
So here I'll share my BOKEH photos!
Umm...I have to admit...oh heaven's I think I may have gotten it on this one!
I think this needs a little more color punch though...
Anyway it's got some mad BOKEH happenin'!
FYI - as I was editing this photo, cute kid of course had to be on my lap (not an ideal editing situation) and was all like "a BEE a BEE!!!"
Cute Kid is so smart!
This was taken at Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, N.S.
See I'm so camera technical-ish.
Here's after I pumped up the contrast a bit.
See how it focused on a bit of the middle of the bark.
I was so impressed with myself I figured someone else must have taken it.
Except that I actually did.
That's my Bokeh Miz Booshay!
I hope I did alright with it! I have TONS of photos that I could share...
like this one...
It's from my Dad's garden!
He gets right proud.
If you want to learn more about Bokeh or Aperture check out this link at The Pioneer Woman.
OR check out Ryan's photography section on This is Reverb. He's also a contributer to The Pioneer Woman's blog...as a uber good chef. But the dude knows photography too! He touches on using a point and shoot as well so you all can benefit from his photography lessons.
