Pet Photography 52 Weeks Project
This is a "blog circle"!
If you scroll down to the bottom of this post and click the link, it will take you to the next very talented Pet Photographer. Keep going until you land back here and you will have come full circle!
Bokeh, pronounced “boh-keh” comes from the Japanese word “boke” (暈け/ボケ), which translates to “blur”, “haze”, or “fuzziness”. Simply put, it is that dreamy out of focus blur in an image. Bokeh is mispronounced often and in many different ways, haha! After living in Japan for 4 years and studying the language for half that time, hearing it mispronounced, like "boo" "kay" makes me just a little crazy inside! Anyway...you say potato I say potahto, lets get back to our weekly theme. This is hands down my favorite style of shooting at the moment. When I'm at the shelter I use my 50 mm lens and like to shoot with an aperture of f/2.8. I have found a few locations on the trails that produce a lovely bokeh when the light is being filtered through the trees on bright sunny summer days. Here are 4 shelter lovelies from the past 2 weeks.
I also used the same lens this week when out with Bruiser and opened it up further to f/1.4 (wide open for this lens). The skies were cloudy so while you see the dreamy background the little orbs of light are not as pronounced as on a sunny day.
And lastly, I hope you enjoy this floppy eared baby goat captured this week with very shallow DOF and lovely bokeh. I just love the soft focus with all her young pink self ❤️
I hope you enjoyed this week as much as I did, now lets head over to About A Dog Photography, St. Cloud & central MN
