After my first adventure with my new camera, a friend of mine mentioned one of the photos had “nice bokeh.” I since learned bokeh is the intentional blurring of background for aesthetic effect, and decided to play with it. Flowers at dusk on a windy stormy day were a great subject matter.
The breeze also made for some interesting lines and warping and motion blurs.
I’m still blown away by shooting f/1.8 on the 5D. The shallowness of the depth of field is just stunning.
And of course sparkly lights are always lovely.
