So I got a Canon Rebel this past Christmas from Corey and have since taken more pictures than I have probably taken in my whole life. I have also started to learn some fancy photography terminology. Well kind of. What I previously referred to as “blurry background in the pretty picture” is actually called a bokeh. I learned this from a fantastic photography workshop that I attended taught by the fabulous Abigail Seymour. After seeing all of these neat heart bokeh shots, including the one in Megan’s post yesterday, I decided that I wanted to try to take a heart bokeh picture. Thanks to Kevin and Amanda’s tutorial, I was able to.
Pretty cool right?
And Pica just happened to walk into view. Okay that’s a bold faced lie. Meg had to feed her approximately 57 treats for her to stay in place long enough to get one picture. She may have gained 5 pounds in 10 minutes. Anywho, I think this little trick opens up a whole world of neat pictures. Corey and I passed a street of trees filled with sparkle lights the other night and I almost made him take me back to the house to get my camera so I could get a heart bokeh picture. It is debatable whether he would have actually done it.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
