“DOF Comparison of Flowers”

I took a photo in the same spot of the same bush of flowers. I wanted to see the difference between each of the f-stops to compare the bokeh from f1.4 to f5 with a 50mm 1.4 Lens

“The Wizard”

This is a statue that has been in my parents house since I was a kid… its so strange… anyway because its a wizard and has stars I decided to cut out a star and create a star shaped hood for the lens to get the star bokeh in the background. I used my Speedlite 580EX-II offcamera to just barely light the statue to give it an eerie look.

“Turtle Butterfly Bokeh Lights”

Okay so this didn’t get where I wanted it to, due to space. I went as far back as I could with the 50mm 1.4 lens but the butterflies didn’t come out. I had to take 2 steps back and at that point the butterflies in the lights came out but it was hand held and no room for tripod… (need a bigger living room???)

So now I know I CAN do it, I will play around more with it tomorrow. I wanted to get a picture before 12am…. so this will have to do. 🙂

Below was the intended bokeh effect…
