It’s safe to say that shooting Bokeh is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit. Not convinced? Well, take a look at these beautiful twinkling Bokeh shots and let that warm Christmassy feeling take over.
Bokeh comes from the Japanese term “boke” which means a haze or blur. It’s the effect of lots of little twinkly dots in an out-of-focus area of your image. The best way to get this effect is to get out your Christmas fairy lights from the attic, set your camera to the widest aperture, focus on something other than the lights and shoot shoot shoot!
You can even cover the centre of the lens with cut out shapes for some super festive shots with stars, hearts and even musical notes! Take a look at some of the wonderful photos taken from the Lomography community.
