Workshop Highlights: Bokeh Dreams with the Lubitel 166+


We introduced a group of Lomographers to the concept of Bokeh, and how to use the Lubitel 166+ to create beautiful photographs. The Lubitel can do so much it's insane to think of all the possibilities!

What: Workshop name – Bokeh Dreams with the Lubitel 166+
When: Saturday, August 18th
Where: Lomography Gallery Store NYC
Camera: Lubitel 166 +

Bokeh is a more advanced technique, but definitely not out of reach for any fan of the Lubitel 166+. Bokeh is when a photograph has very shallow depth of field, and only one party of the image is in focus. It takes a little time to get a hang of the focusing, but once you do, the results are gorgeous.

We had a great group on Saturday learning the Bokeh technique. After getting the hang of how to manipulate focus we headed to Washington Square Park and tested our knowledge. We had a lot of fun and we can’t wait to see everyone’s photographs!

    This is not an accurate description of what Bokeh is. All this article describes is shallow depth of field but Bokeh is actually a manipulation of light (often creating points or dots of light in the background of the photo) through the use of shallow depth of field. Without the light blur it's not really bokeh.
