Bokeh Photography

Bokeh photography was much easier than I thought it would be. I read several articles about the best techniques of getting this effect and finally got something I was proud of!  My next adventure I would like to work on incorporating whole subjects!

I think the easiest way to explain this technique is:
Set your camera to the manual aperture priority setting.
Use the lowest aperture setting you have available to you, I used f/1.8. If you can go lower than that do it!
Have a bright background with color variations.
Choose a subject for the foreground.
And shoot!

Hope that serves as some inspiration 🙂
