“靈光一觸 Ethereal Lights” / 夜之寧 Serenity at Night / SML.20130314.EOSM.03288

I always enjoyed photographing bokeh—the beautiful blur of unfocus. As I was working with some long exposure last night, I experimented with what might happen if I fiddle the zoom when I photograph the unfocused lights from across the harbor, and it gave me this.

 

Experiments are fun because you never really know what might happen until you do it. Many of these “effects” can be faked in Photoshop but quite frankly it is a lot more interesting when you do it physically in a capture—not to mention how much time you save as there is no need to make them look “real” because a capture is obviously 100% real.
