When you’re on your 4th or so day without sunshine and you want to add some sunshine-y bokeh, what do you do…what do you do? You use some garland from Christmas! Set your camera for manual focus, a shallow depth of field (f/5 or lower but don’t be afraid to play around with the aperture), and adjust the focus until you see the type of bokeh balls you want – oh, and make sure the light is hitting the garland. In this case I did a double exposure. The first photo was some copper colored garland while the second shot was the inside of an amaryllis; I was going for more of an abstract look, and I think I got what I was looking for.

Note: you may need to go into your camera’s menu and tell it to allow the camera to take unfocused photos. Wording will vary, but you want to look for something along those lines. Just make sure you turn that feature off when you don’t want blurry/unfocused photos. 🙂
