For those of you that don’t know, Bokeh is a technique to blur out the background, while keeping the subject in question in focus.
I’ve been practicing on how to do this with my camera without digitally editing the pictures. You can see a good example of this with the Dandelion and the close up shot of the two flowers.
In other news, I entered another photography contest on Viewbug called “Two Of A Kind”. It is so fun looking for different objects to snap, or changing my perspective to look at the world in a different way. It is like a scavenger hunt so that I can fufill the requirements for each contest. “Two of a kind”? “Right down the middle”? “Nature in motion”? “Colorsplash”? “Visual Poetry”?
I now see something simple that the average person would pass up and go “That would make an amazing picture!”
I took a lot of photos, so I’ll be sharing them on my site in the days to come, as well as a few older shots I took in the past. Even if I don’t win any of the contests, I have already learned A LOT just by participating.
