You’ll be AMAZED at how this shot was done! Other photographers hate him for it! CLICK TO SEE THIS INCREDIBLE SHOT, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID. I really hate those click bait posts you see on Facebook. Anyway, I digress…
Sometimes when the weather gets a bit too extreme for me, I like to do some research on new locations I want to photograph. Other times, I just want to photograph something instead of planning. I decided to get creative and try out something new, and I really like this shot. It’s really simple in concept, but it took some patience to get this.
The magical blue, star-like background is what makes this so cool right? It’s just a couple sheets of aluminum, and a blue light bulb. If you get your object the perfect distance from the camera and the back ground, you get this effect known as bokeh. I won’t go into the details, but bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”. And with the foil all crumpled up, you get a lot of reflected points of light. Add in a wooden carving of a dragon, and BANG, instant story. Or something like that. Maybe I need a coin a cool phrase like BAZINGA or POP-POP. Eh.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed a little behind the scenes explanation!
