Bubbles and Bokeh!!

There's no better way to spend an afternoon with your friends than blowing bubbles!  Not only did the boys and their friend have fun but I got to play around with focusing and bokeh (blur).  To get this fun blurred effect use a shallow depth of field (low f-stop) and have your subject hold something out in front of them.  Focus on the object and hopefully the object will be in focus and your subject will be slightly blurred!  This is just a fun way to change up your photos and give them a little more interest.  All of these photos were taken at 50 mm, 1/250th at f/4.5, ISO 200.  Thanks for stopping and go have some fun playing with bokeh!



  1. Jen, your photography is amazing! I love the one where Tanner (am I right?) is looking through the bubble. I think you have mastered Bokeh.

    1. Thanks Kim. I always love reading your comments. Such a self esteem boost.;-) I don't even know if you will see that I respond to your comments which is why I don't always comment back. Thanks and you are right that is my Tanner.

  2. Jenny the photos are awesome! You have a most excellent eye. - shellyd
