52 Week Challenge - You-keh | League City Photographers

This week's theme is You-keh: You in the bokeh.  Bokeh is the fuzzy, out-of-focus background that you get in a photo.  Having bokeh helps separate the subject from background.  It makes them stand out.

So for this challenge the object was for me to be in that fuzzy background.  I had to think long and hard about how to achieve this one.  I thought about trying to do something similar to what I have on my about me page, but I took that on the on day that my $5 remote worked.  No remote had me stumped, but finally it donned on me that I could use a mirror.  Then I had to find a subject to focus on so that I could fade into the back.  Lucky for me I have lots of little crazies running around. :)  I processed it 3 ways because sometimes I just can't decide which I love best.

  5. This is key to capturing the couple in their natural moments during their special occasion. Which is why it is important that the photographer must be friendly, jovial and pleasing. Corporate Photographer Bristol
