Bokeh Fun

I like MCP actions on Facebook and they have some pretty cool blog posts. This one about Bokeh, I have been meaning to try since I read it. I was shooting pictures of my tree and decided today was the day. Oh my gosh, the endless possibilities. I just did a star shape and a heart. But you gots to try it. You need your slr camera and paper.
Here is the out of focus picture before...
And After... (these are all sooc= Straight out of Camera shots) Not time to edit.
MCP lady attached the paper to the lens. I just held it. I also needed to take the paper away to focus. I have my camera on back button focus so it locks and it doesn't change when I press the shutter release. I shot in Av or Aperture priority mode. Just set it to 1.8 on my 50 mm lens.

Love these cookie ornaments. Have one for everyone.

Oh. I love this the stars leading away on the right are beads. Not lights. Well they are reflecting light.
