photo challenge | holiday light bokeh

Now that I understand the process for photo challenges with iheartfaces, I’m really enjoying it! I may be speaking too soon since this is only my second try, but this time I knew ahead of time what the challenge would be, and thanks to their tutorial on capturing light bokeh last week, I spent time with my camera over the weekend, trying different lenses, different distances for my subject, and different subjects. It was really educational.

Here’s my final pick for my entry to the holiday light bokeh photo challenge.

I took this with my LensBaby Muse using the camera’s manual setting. Unfortunately using a LensBaby negates the setting of aperture as the camera believes there is no lens attached and you have to manually twist and stretch the lens to get the focus that you want. Before using the LensBaby I got the best shots using my 75-300 mm lens with a f/4.0 aperture (as low as mine will go.) I did get some nice shots that way but I just liked the added distortion that the LensBaby gave the photo.

Share your holiday lights bokeh here – it’s a non-competition challenge with an extended deadline of December 31st!

You don’t take a photograph.ย  You ask, quietly, to borrow it.

    1. Thanks for the comment and compliment! I popped over to your site – I had no idea there were so many sites that did photo challenges out there! I was a little overwhelmed by your reference page. I hope to check some out when I have time. I have some ideas for more shots and was going to play around again today, I might post something in your challenge tomorrow. Happy Holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚
