This is called bokeh!
Wouldn’t it be cool if your next backdrop was made completely out of this fantastic effect? We tried it and loved it, and chances are you will, too!
So we’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your very own glittery bokeh backdrop. Follow along and let the magic begin.
Storm season is upon us which means it’s the perfect time to try for some shocking shots.
Lightning photos are hard to perfect but super fun to attempt. Here’s a few tips for getting started.
First and most importantly: Stay safe. Distance is your best friend – use a telephoto lens when possible. Keep your gear dry by setting up under a covered patio or deck.
Second: Long exposures mean you need a tripod, or duct tape and a rock, whatever it takes to get that stability!
Third of all: Every storm is different, so your settings will vary slightly each time. Try these to start with and play around from there –
- ISO 100
- f/7 aperture
- 30 second exposure
For a more in depth tutorial, check out Richard Gottardo’s excellent write-up here covering everything from storm searching to stacking images in post.
And you thought puddle jumping was the best part of a storm…
