As I’m feeling a little festive, I thought I’d share some experimental bokeh photos I took last night. With the 4KQ Christmas lights winners list as our treasure map, my friend and I explored the pretty lights of suburbia.
Bokeh is the Japanese word for ‘blurred’, and in a photography context, describes the art of placing a cut out shape over the lens so that small lights that are out of focus will take on the shape of the cut out. For an easy tutorial on how this is done, click here.
Please keep in mind that I am a total novice at photography but I’m pretty good with a stanley knife :p
