You may be looking at this photo and saying "What????" Remember: One, this is Phun Phriday! and Two, the title says Bokeh. So don't look at the silly little Christmas doll, look at the lights and reflections of lights off the red beads on the tree behind the doll.
While the Christmas decorations were still up and in full bloom I decided to try a little experiment on something I had read about and always said I would try, but never did. So I tried it, and to be honest it's kind of cheesy, but under the right circumstances could be useful or more appropriately, Phun!
I wouldn't be a bit surprised if most of you have done this kind of thing before, but I also wouldn't be too surprised if only a few of you had seen it before. First it is not done with Photoshop. This photo comes straight out of the camera. If there are a few of you that are interested in how I did this please say so in your comments and I'll do a full blown tutorial. If not, or if you've already done this, then great, I got my Phun Phriday! post done and we'll move on.
Speaking of moving on. Tomorrow, for January 1, 2011, I'm going to post what is probably my number one favorite photo that I took in 2010, and true to my analogy about the meal and saving the best until last, this is a photo that you have never seen on my blog before.
As you know by now photography should be Phun and that's why I have my Phun Phriday! posts. Have you done something Phun, weird and/or creative lately? If so, leave a link to it in your comment or just tell us it's there so we can go find it. If not, I'd really love to hear from you anyway. OBTW, if you do post something for Phun Phriday! it would put a big smile on my face if you added a link to my blog. Thanks!
