Day 74/365 Bokeh and a Floating Flower...

by Russell Smith March. 14, 2019 157 views

My Son got his girlfriend some condolence flowers because her biological father passed away on Tues. There was one that kept catching my eye so I decided to shoot that for the bokeh prompt . Then I wanted to see what I could do with the LED light to create a shot that was more about the texture and shape of the flower so the black and white shot is what I came up with for that idea.

Very nice and creamy/dreamy bokeh. Usually my preference for background blur!
Really makes it isolated from the background, which is the real point of bokeh!

It took me a bit to find the balance of Blur vs sharp parts of the image.  I think I settled on f-5 because it gave a nice balance of the two for me.

Both are beautiful but my fav is the BNW, I see the texture more 😊

I can't decide which I like better, each have their special offering. Both very nice.

I love the textures in the B&W one . I took several shots as I moved the light around the flower this was the winner to me.
