Nov 21st--325/365----Ringing Bokeh

this old phone has been in lugged around with me and used in random photos from the first semester i took in the darkroom --its just one of those random props that sticks around --i even used it in my day 173 photo that made fp Techno Daze Phone Message ------ i knew i wanted to do a Bokeh photo at some point in this 365 --to kinda add to the flickr theme of these shots --and booya i was packing up all my props before i leave and the phone came to mind as it half rang from the drop on the floor ---thats how this idea came about in case you were wondering -----so i set up this shot in my make shift studio-- (a black sheet held to the wall with 2 tacks in the kitchen--so very true) and tried to line up the bokeh in the background --i had all the lights on an extra light stand ---then i got the phone out and set that part up --and then it was just a matter of balancing the back bokeh lights with the foreground flash light that was used to light the phone and then trying a bunch of different lighting to see what suited the image best ---
