Bokehlicious Manhattan…

SLR cameras are great for super sharp images if that is your style, but I remember when I first got my first Digital SLR and that feeling that you could do so much more than straight shots, you could take creative control over your camera. That’s when it started happening for me, I just love soft images and I love abstract or intimate landscapes. I’ve just returned from a week long solo trip to New York and I am going to begin by showing you some images of the Manhattan skyline shot from the East River. I think with Bokeh there is a magic half hour that is just after the sun sets, before it gets too dark and the effect dissipates. I love abstract images, your brain tells you the information you need for identification and the bokeh just draws you into the most important part of the image, the light, millions of tiny lights. I tried this out on larger landscapes from height, but it doesn’t work so well.
