"Bokeh is an optical effect in which the background of a photo is blurred. The blur is produced by taking photos with a shallow depth of field. Bokeh occurs in the areas of the photo that are out-of-focus. As a result, the background looks softer and the subject sharper and more vivid. If there are highlights in the background, they will take on the shape of the lens’s aperture. Most often these “specular highlights” are circles, sometimes hexagonals." - taken from thephotoargus.com
When I started my photography journey two years ago , Bokeh was one of the topic I learnt. I knew I would love to learn more and improved on it. I know I still have lots to learn and I also know that photography is my second love after cooking and baking :) This photo was taken handheld with my Nikon D7000 with Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC lens of my mini hibiscus with the Bokeh effect in the background. I am happy with this shot though it may not be a winning one :) This just shows that with perseverance I can do it !
I MAY NOT BE THERE YET
BUT I KNOW I AM CLOSER
THAN I WAS YESTERDAY !
