Hearts and Flowers

Variation of my earlier post with birds bokeh. This was my 1st try with a simpler setup in outdoor light. I used my 50mm lens with a heart cutout taped directly to the lens. At f2, it has a very short depth of field and gives great circles of bokeh at a short distance (about 4 feet here) from the point of focus (only 1 ft from the lens). Nikon 50mm, f2.0, 1/80 sec, ISO 800, manual focus

Very pretty and creative, Wally. I'll bet a lot of us will be playing with this technique! #11459715

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
