Bloom Forum Project 52/Week 13 {Greenwood, SC Kids Photographer}

hello sunday!  this week’s theme for my Project 52 on the Bloom Forum is “bokeh & depth of field”.  if you’re not a photographer you may be saying, “what the heck is bokeh?”.  but even people who don’t know what it is…usually love it when they see it 🙂  you know that “fuzzy” background that you see in pictures…sometimes looks like little dots of colors or light?  well that’s bokeh!  and I love it!  bokeh is achieved by shooting “wide open” or using a shallow depth of field with your lens.  i won’t go in to it but i’m sure you can find some great tutorials if you’re interested in reading up on it.

the image i choose for this week’s project shows how beautiful bokeh can be….and the girl is pretty darn cute too 🙂  enjoy!
