Ok here's another one before I hit the sack...
Camz, that first picture is real nice.
I'll get in on this...
Although its hard to tell, the blue background was actually a work shop.
Taken (Handheld) with stacked Tiffen macro filters on Hoya 81A on Nikkor 50mm f/2 on Nikon FM, ASA 200 (uncropped full frame)
Shot (Handheld) with Canon Macro FD 50mm 3.5 on Canon EF, ASA 800
Taken with Vivitar 400mm on Canon EF, ASA 400
Taken (Handheld) with Canon Macro FD 100mm on Canon EF, ASA 400
Taken (Handheld) with Canon Macro FD 100mm on Canon EF, ASA 800
For fun. Very first photo with the 50mm
First Jail cell in San Diego....
All shots taken with the 50mm - my baby!
Nikon D2x at ISO 200, 1/250s f/4.5 at 200.0mm, Vivitar 285 HV flash hand-held in left hand
with SC-17 connecting cord, direct flash at fractional power for eye catchlights.
February blooming miniature crocus flowers shot with a Fuji S2 Pro 6MP d-slr with Tamron 90mm macro at f/4.8 at 1/90
Shade WB at ISO 100 RAW, SB-28DX flash with PhotoFlex mini-softbox, SC-17 cord, MacBibble 3.1a auto proof,
which was reduced to this file. No post processing, just this automatic conversion.
Nikon D2x ,200mm f/2 VR-G at f/2.8 1/30 sec ISO 400 exposure for miniature Christmas lights as a background,
foreground flash exposure is from Vivitar 285HV flash in small Photoflex umbrella and gelled w TN-A1,
camera WB set to Incandescent WB to render mini Christmas lights appropriately. My Canon 70-200 2.8 L-IS rendered
the mini Christmas lights as "football-shaped" ellipsoidal blobs; the 200 f/2 Nikkor makes a very circular blur disc.
Well, a theme thread on "Bokeh" has existed for years now, so I merged the newly started one with the existing one.
Nice theme, and I hope I got "bokeh" here and not only just "blurred background", though I am still not quite so sure about it...!?!?
I can go look through my archives in an attempt to find examples which I myself feel lean more towards "bokeh" than just "blurred background", but that takes time. This is just one of my newest pics.
Here's another one that might fit the theme, I took this one last year in November:
And an even older one, taken in May of 2006 on Riensberg Cemetery in Bremen.
The imperfect flower, destroyed by heavy rainfalls.
I should go look for photos that I took when the 50mm lens was all new... ;-)
Very Very nice shots everyone! I guess there was a thread for it after all and we got moved!
Eric - Great shot on the butterfly touching down on the flower!
Battou - Nice flower shots!
Kalamarie - My favorite is the teacup. Very creamy bokeh on this shot!
Derrel - Those colourful lights in the background are pretty much circles...what are
you using a hundred blade lens? LOL great shots!
Lafoto - The purple flower takes the cake! Very very appealing to the eye
farmerj - Cheers!
JE kay - Nice hairstyle on the horse!
Ok here's the next one from me...the bokeh isn't noticable but I like it how creamy it turned out just behind the subject.
