If the shoe fits….

The shoe shown below is a knick knack of mine from Versailles, France.  I’ve always loved it and thought it would look pretty with bokeh lights behind it, so off I went to my studio (aka my bathroom) to take the shot.  The setup was very complicated….I laid a strand of white xmas lights on our bathroom counter and set the little shoe about 3 feet in front of the lights.  I made sure the bathroom was semi-dark and turned on a light behind me (from the toilet area).  Doesn’t my light kit make you jealous????  😉

I did have to “pump” up the ISO (pardon the pun) a bit but fortunately my camera handles high ISO quite nicely.  I hope you enjoy it!

Bokeh Moon

A new picture but the same subject…BOKEH!  I can’t help myself.  I focused on the olive tree once again and made sure the car reflections were positioned “strategically” in the frame.  This time I tried to make an artful image of it.

Olive Bokeh

The other night I was sitting out on the back deck enjoying the view during a beautiful early evening.   As I looked off in the distance, I noticed reflections from the sun bouncing off a row of car windows.  Fortunately I had my 28-300mm lens on my camera, so I decided to focus on the olive branch on our deck making sure I kept the car windows in my frame.

I love bokeh!
