Anyway, I got a new lens this year for my birthday. It's a 50mm prime lens with a 1.8 f/stop. I love it and boy does it help create some bokeh! I set up a little studio in my family room so I could try it out the other day and I am loving how my shots turned out. The kids were at school so my subject had to be something else. Our mini-weinie dog volunteered to help me out. At first I was going to use one of my Nutcrackers but she insisted that I photograph her instead. :) She's so helpful.
Look at that bokeh! Not too much blur but just enough. Let's go in a little closer.
I am sure I will take more pictures of the tree as Christmas day is approaching but I had fun playing with my camera and getting a couple of good bokeh shots. Do you play pretend photographer at your house? Any good Christmas tree bokeh tips you want to share with me?
