Have you noticed all the holiday photos that are gracing the web this holiday? There is some pretty amazing talent out there.

I new that I had to try my hand at getting a descent bokeh photo of something Christmas related. Should I one of my snowmen and try it with that? Nope not Christmas-y enough. I've got plenty of Santas from my Satan collention, that's a good Christmas themed item? Nope again.
This is what I settled on, one of my nativity sets. Simple but elegant, tells the real story for the season in just one piece.
Getting a good bokeh photo is a bit touchy. Got to have lots of distance and a large aperture (lens) open for good round blurred lights.
Next I think I will try putting a cutout on my lens and see what comes of that.
Enjoy and Happy Friday
I enjoy participating and joining in on following photo challenges. If you haven't visited any of them, you are in for a real treat and talents. Participating in a daily or weekly photo challenge helps keep you in the photo grove not to mention lots and lots of practice. Check these out.
