    I'm learning how to shoot photos by doing everything manually.

    For this photo I wanted to have a lot of bokeh to spice up a simple composition but to keep the camera sharp at the same time.

    The final shot was 50mm, manual focus, 1/50 f2,2 with one stop underexposed.

    I also shot the background of the screen manually. Yep, that's a self portrait :D
    I kept that a little too dark on purpose so it wouldn't be too overexposed in the final shot since the screen works as a lamp.

    All the Photoshop work I did was removing dust and putting in a slight bit of contrast.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks for your interest.
    Cheers, Jeroen

    Very sharp, good contrast, and looks to be exposed very well, but a little too centered, and the image needs something else to kind of break it up, some background would be nice.
