So I decided to try a little experiment with the bokeh effect on my photographs.
I've done this before and created some photographs that I quite liked but I was only messing around.
This time, whilst I worked hard to achieve certain results, it didn't turn out as I planned. I even tried to create special effects by using shape masks over my lens. I couldn't get the aperture/distance combination quite right and I think my shapes were actually a little bit too large for my purposes.
However, here is a log of my attempts. Hopefully I will have a much improved version soon.
