Bokeh

I was excited to learn a new photography term recently! I am always excited to learn new things about photography. My amazing photo hero, Carin, gave a photography challenge for the month of August. The challenge is to capture bokeh. You can click on the link to learn what it is. The two of you who read my blog probably know that I haven't been feeling great the last couple of months and that is why I haven't blogged very much. I also haven't picked up my camera for a while since my hands have been really shaky. That has made me very sad. But last night a very close friend of mine asked me to take pictures of her gorgeous daughter because she is going to enter a beauty pageant. I took my trusty tripod to help me! And took my seven-year-old son who wanted to be my "assistant"! It was so cute! So I got to try out what I had learned! I want to thank Carin for the monthly challenges because it got me out of my house into the sunshine, doing what I love to do and learning something new about photography! Thank you!

I tried to capture the bokeh in these two pictures!




These next pictures were my favorites so I am sharing these too! Isn't she absolutely gorgeous! She better win!!

What beautiful pictures! I'm so sorry that you haven't been feeling well lately... I wish there were some magic treatment to make you feel better quickly.

Bokeh is way cool, too.
