I’ll never forget the first time I captured pretty Christmas tree bokeh (completely by accident).
Today a quick (to the point) video on how to capture smooth Christmas light bokeh on purpose.
You will Need
- Fairy Lights (smaller twinkle lights work best.)
- a low f/stop lens. For this video, I used the Sigma ART 50mm f/1.4
Different focal lengths will impact the bokeh you capture. Experiment.
- a subject (I used a chair, but this can be whatever your heart desires.)
- space between your subject and the lights
