bokeh lantern

Newer Older

Another bokeh experiment using Christmas lights in the background to create the bokeh. I shot this one outside at night with a clump of lights providing backlight to a glass candle lantern. The bokeh and the reflections from the glass seem to do well with the silhouette of the lantern. One of the few disappointments was that the lit candle inside the lantern didn't stand out more (see note on pic). I didn't realize it until later, but the candle flame was aligned with a groove in the glass that both minimized and distorted it. Probably easily correctable though.

    Will,
    I really like this alot! This turned out so much better than the last one I thought any way, for what that's worth!
    I see what you mean about the flame in the lantern though! Maybe, if you had a little bit larger white candle it would make the flame look bigger, I don't know! I just think it's great! 1location
    By the way, I am putting my favorite photos from all my contacts in my Faves Photostream for all to see if that's O.K. with you ! If not , please let me know and I will remove yours immediately. No problem! I won't have a camera for at least another week. So, I thought this would be a good idea. They are safe here, you don't have to worry!
    Give that little one a great big hug for me! Take care!
