Assignment 3 – Bokeh – Malika

remember how i said i was going to avoid using a christmas tree/christmas tree lights for my bokeh assignment? (of course you don’t, barring one or two conversations, that was merely a random thought in my head)

anyways, i may have lied.

it’s not my fault though…not really anyways. the holiday season just made it so much easier to include bokeh in my pictures because there were lights just about everywhere i looked! that being said, i did attempt to set-up some kind of a shot without any christmas lights…and in my opinion, it isn’t very exciting. although the ones with christmas lights weren’t really exciting either…

the fruits of my efforts are below. i’ve included a couple of different shots since i didn’t really like any of them that much. the first is my attempt at creating a (somewhat) interesting shot with no holiday lights at all…just caught the chandelier’s reflection in a mirror before dinner one evening.

speaking of chandeliers…this next shot is what i consider my “cheating” shot since it’s got the christmas tree in the background. it’s a picture of the angel that we hang off our chandelier every holiday season…we’ve had her for as long as i can remember and even though she’s kind of starting to fall apart, i can’t bear to let my mom throw her away.

this last shot is a string of decorative christmas lights that were hanging as part of the ICE! “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” exhibit at the national harbor. again, not terribly exciting, but i liked the colors! and the bokeh circles are pretty close to perfect circles…


One thought on “Assignment 3 – Bokeh – Malika

  1. Per usual, you are entirely too critical of your skills. The one of angel is really great because you got something very interesting in focus and the bokeh is almost an afterthought but just as salient in the picture!
