Okay, so I made up the word sunspots to describe circular background blur... thank you for putting me onto the correct terminology Mel and Catherine... bokeh. I have been doing my research this morning while the house is Boy-less and I was a tad bored. After watching countless beautiful bokeh youtube vids and reading tutorials I proceeded to dig up The Boy's digital SLR Pentax istDL (just pointing out that this means nothing to me at present) and... we.are.in.LOVE!
My golly, why didn't I play with this camera earlier? To be frank - I was always too scared of the Av, Tv, aperture, depth of field, M buttons and dials that I refused to go near it. But now... bokeh has inspired me through and through. We are going to get to know each other real well!
I have been a bit uninterested with crochet of late (craft mojo very low), so I am thrilled to have something capture my enthusiasm. Is it crazy that my heart was beating quicker than normal while I was taking photos with the camera this morning?
I'll try some night and evening shots next. xx
