It’s that time of that time of the year again when our houses and streets are adorned with colourful Christmas lights to add cheer to the season! One of the things that you probably want to try, or do again, is to capture beautiful bokeh shots of decorative lights. However, if you are using your Lomo LC-A+ you are likely to get out of focused light shots such as the one above?
Not pretty enough, right? So how do we achieve bokehs like those that come out of SLRs with 1.8 prime lens, when what we only have is our trusty LC-A+, or other compact cameras?
All you need to do is to buy or find a cheap magnifying glass. Set your focusing at 0.8 meter, place the magnifying glass right in front of your LC-A+, point towards the lights, at about 0.5 to 2 meters, and shoot. If all goes well, you should be able to get gorgeous light bokehs! Go ahead and try it!
The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!
