I could start with myself? lol :)

I'm Khantipol, but it's easier for everyone just to call me K. A Nikon user for most of my photography years. Currently using D80 with plan to upgrade for almost a year now. But it keep working and keep producing good result so I still have it around :) I like to work with shallow dof, so obviously bokeh is the result. I also like to play with light, so a few sb-800 speedlights are also my favorite things around. You can see my profile for list of what I used. It's not that up to date, though. I'm lazy :)

If you have questions about techniques that I used on my photos or some other questions, feel free to ask. write me flickr mail, or post a new topic is also good if you think it will be useful to our friends here too.

I hope everyone enjoy the group and all these bokehlicious photos so far :)

CharlaneG 10 years ago
Hi- I'm Charlane (Char to my friends) and I live in Birmingham, Alabama (USA). I'm shooting with a Canon XTi and have just discovered the wonderful world of bokeh. I saw it before but never knew what it was called...and then I fell in love. I shoot with several lens including my new 50mm - 85mm - 28-300mm and my kit. My next craving is a really good tripod.

Otherwise, I love reading - tons of books, I travel a lot in my job and love to just get out and shoot whatever catches my eye.

Hi, I'm Rhonda and I live in Murfreesboro, TN, smack dab in the middle of the state. I have always loved photography, but it wasn't until this year that I finally got my Canon xti, which I am in love with. My family thinks I'm insane to be so crazy for a camera and I'm just getting my feet wet and learning as I go. I love this group, everyone is so nice!

I also love reading, travelling (lived in Germany for 5 years), and spending time with my family.

Hi everyone, I'm Aurus. I've been into photography for a few years now but got addicted to flickr only recently. Just last week, actually, when I got myself a pro account. I'm a Canon girl. Other than photography, my interests are music, books, and crafts.

I don't know if I should say this, but my request to join the Bokeh Wednesday group was declined so I went in search of other bokeh groups and found EHBD. I'm glad I ended up here though! I look forward to getting to know you guys a little better.

OK, getting long now... Oh, but before I end, I have a few SP's up on my stream, the number of which will gradually increase as time goes by, since I'm currently doing the 52 Weeks project.

Hi, i'm Alex. I started photography only recently, but i've always been pretty interested in it. I'm also a full fledged bokeholic despite only learning what it was a few months ago. I'd say that i'm interested in reading, but I recently completed the last english class i'll ever have to take and couldn't be happier. I'll be heading to Virginia Tech in the fall (with none other than my best friend, hooray!) to study Human Nutrition and become a dietician.

My only camera is a point and shoot kodak that I'm planning to upgrade from as soon as I get tired of it and my budget allows for it. Other than that I love writing (when time allows) and technology...I'd join a bokeh support group but i'm not sure that i could be rehabed :)

The look of these older single-coated and uncoated optics render a nice "signature" that is different from modern lenses.

Hi! My name is Jill and I live in California, near Sacramento. I am a social services worker, I'm married, and between us we have six kids, three cats, a dog, and a rabbit. :-)
I have a Rebel XTi, the kit lens (18-55mm), 28-85mm which I strongly dislike and will be selling soon, and a 50mm that I am absolutely in love with. I also have two tripods and a remote. My next planned purchase is the Canon Zoom Telephoto EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS Image Stabilizer USM Autofocus Lens but I don't know when I'll be able to plop down that kind of cash.
I have always enjoyed taking photos but until probably 6 years ago, I only had P&S cameras and very cheap ones at that.
An online friend of mine posted photos she took that just amazed me. I bought the same camera she had, an Olympus C-2100UZ, and I thought it was awesome! LOL I think it's 2.1MP? Not that far from a P&S either.
It was just over a year ago that I bought my Rebel XTi and it's almost always in my hand. I still have a LOT to learn, but my photos are a lot better than in the beginning, that's for sure.
I do not like taking portrait photos and I am horrible at it. My favorite subjects are plants, flowers, insects, my pets, and just "things".
Forgive me for talking so much about myself. I was in training today (all week actually) for work and today's topic was passion. I am passionate about photography.

Hi. My name's Geoff and I live in Canberra, Australia. I've always loved looking at pictures and that's why I love taking them and always trying to capture what my mind is seeing. It's funny, I love eating nice food and so I love cooking ... I love listening to music and so I spent 15yrs playing music as a drummer and percussionist ... all part of the same deal really. Early in 2007 I sold most of my musical gear and invested in some nice glass. I haven't looked back.

I use a Nikon D80 and though I think often of upgrading the body (mostly to get the higher ISO performance) ... the D80 really does take great pictures and mine's not broken. I've only been involved with the Flickr community for a little while but have found myself seriously addicted to the process of making contacts & comments, the encouragement and of course the sensational standard of photography I see here.

Cheers & nice to meet you all. :-)

Hello all! I am... Raceytay (It's not my real name, or not quite ;) )

I've been taking photos with zest for a few years now. I just treated myself to a canon 40D and my baby (70-200mm 2.8F L IS) and has a result became what I like to call a bokeh whore. I see bokeh everywhere, now. And I likes it.

Sorry K I just found this... obviosly not been paying attention to anything else other than bokeh pics... maybe this bokeh addiction is starting to take effect on my eyesight!

Hi everyone, I'm Takako from Japan and I'm going pretty mental over bokeh and awesome bokeh photos I see on Flickr. I used to shoot with Nikon Coolpix P80 with ok bokeh results but I had to upgrade to D80 and 50mm f1.4 lens to get better bokeh ( huge influences from some of you above ↑ me! ) and I'm so happy with it. I'm a beginner and still have loads to learn. This addiction is such fun!

Thanks K, you're wonderful. :)

hi, i'm keegan, and i live in norfolk, virginia. I just bought the nikkor 105mm f/2.8g (previously was using the 60mm f/2.8d). I've been taking pictures since February of this year. I really enjoy bugs & plants, i'm starting to wonder what i'm going to do for the next few months, as bugs & plants seem to disappear for the winter.

Hi I'm Jacky from England, I hope I can join the group? I use a Nikon D300 and a Nikkor 105m which I love to bits. I joined flickr 6 months ago and had now idea what bokeh was, but now I'm hooked, and still learning from all the friendly people on the site. :]

Hi everyone,
I'm Ralf from Germany. I think I'm the first german, right? Well I'll do my very best ;-)
My family consists of my wife and two boys. They say it's boring that I take photos everytime and everywhere. But they like it to watch them :-)
Oh, and two parrots and a dog and two "meerschweinchen" (I don't know the english word...) And a Nikon D40! Because of my budget there are only two lenses in my bag :-(
And I love bokeh!!!
Hi All~

I am a 30 something Mom of 3 great kids. Photography is my non-mommy obsession. I am truly addicted to bokeh and found this group through Cora's feed. I look forward to posting a ton as I can't shoot enough bokeh!

I shoot with Nikon D60 and hope to upgrade the first of the year.

Hi,
I'm MV, from California. Nikon D90 is my first DSLR, i have it for a little more than a month now and i love it. Looking at all the "bokehlicious" photos out there inspired me to learn how to take better bokeh photos since i am such a newbie at this =)

It's nice to meet you all!

I'm Aimee, turning 27 in just two days (Ack!), and I have only been practising photography seriously for just under a year. I use a Nikon D60 and it was a gift from a photographer friend that saw talent in my little P&S shots :)

Other than photography, I love to read (I follow the Eragon series, as well as a couple others, but I will read almost anything fiction), I do web/graphic design with full html, and I am a beginning Guitar Hero nerd :)
