This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #194, Sofia from Photographia is hosting and the fun theme of Bokeh is chosen.
I love this theme because bokeh feels like it’s something that can only be achieved with a camera or when one gets both eyes dilated. It also lends a mysterious feel for a photo.
Like Sofia, I, too, keep my camera in Aperture Priority mode and often dial the F-stop to the maximum – F/4 at 70 mm and F/2.8 at 17mm for my lens – when I take photos of flowers to get maximum blur.
I don’t know which I like better. I have been practicing my photo composition ever since the photo composition class in March. The instructor used the composition in the left photo quite a bit and her photo looked good. I feel like it does look a bit strange to have the foreground blurred as opposed to the background.
What do you think?
