Today I’m Sharing Bokeh Photography Tips..
Bokeh Is The Photography Term Used To Define Out Of Focus Light Sources That Simply Look Like Neat Circles In The Background Of The Photograph.While Bokeh Looks Like a Complex Task, Creating The Bokeh Effect Is Actually Pretty Simple to do. Here’s Quick Three Steps That Will Help You Capture Amazing Backgrounds.
Step 1: Find a light source.
The true definition of bokeh isn’t just a blurred background, but blurred lights. Naturally, that means you have to find a light source.
A cityscape at night or evening sun filtering through some trees works too. You can even crinkle up some tinfoil and put a light in front of it for some great bokeh.
The best light sources to create bokeh are small, and it’s usually best to have a few of them. The sun won’t create a bokeh effect itself, but small patches of sunlight coming through leaves will. Outside of finding small light sources, keep in mind the color of the light source will show up in your photos too.
Step 2: Position your subject…far from the light source.
Beginners often put their subject directly in front of the background, or even leaning up against it. But, the farther your subject is from the background, the blurrier the background will be. To create bokeh, the background needs to be blurry, so make sure to position your subject at least a few feet in front ahead of the light source. If you don’t have a camera with manual modes.you’ll want to get even further away.
Outside of using distance to blur the background, distance will affect how big those light orbs appear. So, if you want larger orbs of light, you’ll need to place the subject a little bit closer to the light source. For smaller circles, put even more distance between the subject and the background.
Bonous Tip: If you don’t want to photograph a subject but just want a photo of only bokeh switch to manual focus. Adjust the focus until the lights are completely out of focus and Bam! Bokeh!
Step 3: Adjust your aperture, then take the shot.
Distance will help blur out the background, but so will aperture. A wide aperture, or smaller f-number, will blur out that background even more. A wide f/1.8 will really blur out that background for a great bokeh effect. Set your camera to Aperture Priority mode and choose a low f-number, then you are ready to take the shot.
Bonous Tip: If you don’t have Aperture Priority Mode on your camera, try the portrait scene mode.
You can use both aperture and distance to control the bokeh in the background.
If you don’t want to use a super wide aperture because you need more of the subject in focus, or don’t have a lens capable of a super wide aperture, simply use compensate for the narrower aperture by adding more distance between the subject and the light source. With a bit of experimenting, you should be able to capture a bokeh effect by using both distance and aperture to blur the background.
