Christmas Light Bokeh


We were at Temple Square in Salt Lake City looking at all the Christmas lights (I'll post some photos soon), and I thought "Great time to collect some bokeh!" Who doesn't like those beautiful blobs of light? Normally, the bokeh would be in the background when you take a photo with a shallow depth of field. Here, I simply put on my 70-200mm lens, set the focus on manual and then intentionally blurred. It is so fun to blur photos when normally you are always agonizing about getting them tack sharp. Try it.

Or if you want to take any of the images in this post for desktop wallpaper or some project, you can get them in my freebies gallery. Just remember that you need to first open the photo in the original size before you right-click or else you'll end up with a very small file.
