picturing BOKEH


During this season of light, you can’t help but capture beautiful bokeh or the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. In this picture, I like the obvious bokeh from the white Christmas lights on the tree, but if you look at little closer, you will see some more subtle red bokeh from the Christmas lights reflecting off the red ornaments on the tree. Cheers!

  1. This is a really neat photo! f/2.8 50mm? (Pssst… sensor dust πŸ˜‰

  2. Yes, the 2.8, 50 mm — I am loving it! Do you have suggestions for how to clean sensor dust? It makes me nervous!

  3. Wow! I dunno if I made an educated guess or a lucky guess. πŸ™‚

    I cleaned the sensor on my dSLR recently. Don’t be so nervous. For one, you’re not actually touching the sensor, but a film that is over the sensor. So long as you’re not aggressive, should go fine. First try powerful blasts of uncompressed air. Usually there will be some stubborn sticky particles that remain. Use a sensor cleaning swab and sensor cleaning solution. To be honest, I had neither and used a Q-tip and condensation from my warm breath. Yeah, dumb. But it worked. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a link you might find helpful, it that it should give you confidence. Check out Episode #71:

    Lovely bokeh – it’s like multiplying the ornaments and lights on the tree.
