Merry Christmas in a FUNKY Bokeh Photographer Way

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate.  I wish you a wonderful day, spent with family, good food, warm thoughts, health and love.

As a photographer, I hope you are able to capture memories with your snapshots and images.  If you are in the mood to try something fun and different, check out the article on how photograph lights and capture shaped bokeh.

I used the Bokeh Masters Kit on the 50 1.8 lens – went in my neighborhood at dark and photographed Christmas lights. It was fun and artist – and none look like Christmas trees…  Enjoy some of my results and go make your own with the do-it-yourself bokeh directions or the “kit.”

    How fun! I just got that kit for Christmas and played around with it a bit. I haven’t had time, or internet access, to upload them. These are great.
