P52-3-24 Light: Bokeh Highlights
Posted By: Rense, 01-08-2011, 02:25 PM

Too late posting this one, sorry!!!!

Week 24 of P52-3 we will shoot Bokeh Highlights. The idea is, to create
nice bubbles, or stars!!!, in your background....... Probably that's not too
difficult, but somehow they have to add to the photo, in telling a story, or
creating a special mood or so....

Good luck!

Just some backgrounds and some ideas:
DSLR Bokeh Highlights Tutorial
Starlights on MFLenses

Time Frame: pictures for week 24 are to be taken and posted between
20110108 and 20110116, so from January 8th 2011 - January 16th, 2011.

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-3 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by nonPentax
cameras are allowed. Cameras can be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot and Medium Format.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from 20100731 to listed closing date is acceptable for the two
“Seasonal” competitions – Projects 52-3-51 & 52.

Additional Information, including the scheme with subjects: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/mini-challenges-games-photo-stories/10506...-year-3-a.html.

Have fun shooting!

Rather subtle bokeh in this shot. My Single in January lens (DA 55-300) is not very fast but it does produce some nice bokeh. If I come up with something I like better I reserve the right to change this, but in case we don't get much more sunlight this week...

Here's my entry for now so I don't miss out. It was VERY bright out today, so even with a CPL I had to stop down a bit. Now if I only had some ND filters...

I'd hoped to shoot a different kind of photo for this week's P52, but the sun didn't cooperate, so here's my entry:

Nice Tamia, I know what you mean about uncooperative light. But what a creative approach, I like it!

Thank you, Joe. It was the last picture in a "roll" and I had no hopes for it but it surprised me.
