Friday Photography-Bokeh

My favorite type of photos to take are Bokeh pictures. Bokeh is Japanese for fuzziness. I'm sure you have heard of it from other blogs.

I use this effect for my review photos.

And for my doggie photos.

And for the kids photos.

This effect has become more and more popular with photographers, and there are lots of information on the Internet to learn how to make this effect.

I found an interesting article titled, Bokeh pictures-How to make one easily

In this article, the author explains about the different lenses that allow your photos to have the bokeh effect. Some lenses would probably be out of my price range, but if you can afford them, you could make some fabulous photos!

Macro lenses can give the same effect when shooting something up close. In the article, Learning the Craft of Closeup Photography, the author explains the different lenses to use and about the subjects that make great closeup photos. This could make for great visual tools for foodie bloggers. The article also has some great photos that demonstrate macro photos.

So, take this weekend to practise some bokeh or macro photography and post about it on Monday to show everyone how you did!

I wish I could afford a decent camera. I always buy the cheap ones. Like Coolpix, etc.

I didn't know about that phrase or about the technique. Photography is one of my hobbies. I long to learn more about it. One of these days I'm going to take the time to just do it. Thanks for your tips.
