Street Bokeh Experiment

Street Bokeh

It's always fun to experiment with photography by trying different angles, different aperture settings, or laying your camera in the middle of the street and shooting straight ahead. The good thing about digital photography is that every photograph is free, so you can take as many photos as you want as many different ways as you want and it doesn't cost you an extra dime. In this shot, I literally set my camera on the stripe in the road (making sure no cars were coming), set the f-stop to 1.8, manually focused so that the only area in focus was just a few feet in front of the camera, and took the shot. I love creating nice bokehs with lights, because they make these nice little circles of color that are so fun to look at. I wanted to create a nice depth of field with a small area of focus, but still be able to have recognizable objects in the background. Sort of a slight abstract photo. Go out and experiment with compositions, angles, camera settings and see what comes out of the camera!

Here is another photo from my hometown of West Point, and also another photo of an old theater. I'm sure that there are tons of these in Mississippi, and I look forward to discovering more.
