December Bokeh

IMG_7950

The Journal Your Christmas InFocus prompt today was to do something like this.  I got instructions for rigging up my camera from The Scrappy Jedi here.  It doesn’t look real, but these are all photos of my Christmas tree using black paper over my 50 mm lens, setting the lens to manual focus and the f-stop to 1.8 mm, then making sure the tree is out of focus and the star shape is near the center of the lens.  LOVE IT!

I have been wanting to do something like this all season.

So happy to have some spare time to just play around. 

Good times!
