Bokeh love as the sun sets on Paris…

Just returned from a wonderful long weekend in Paris, weather was mixed it could be beaming sunshine for hours and then there would be a fantastic thunder and lightning storm for half an hour. I don’t have a set plan on these trips, but in my mind I have an idea of what I want to shoot, but as always, the unexpected shots are always the best. I have walked the length of Paris this weekend, armed with the Nikon D610 and my new Fujifilm X100s. The square shots are taken on the Fuji. Here are a collection of shots just as it was beginning to get dark – I make no apologies for the Bokeh shots. I love them.

  1. I thought the last two were terrific! Could you share what post production steps you took with these – if any. I also own the 100X s and love it.

    • Ha ha, then we both are feeling the Fuji Love then. Very little post work on these Jpegs. I had the camera set to Velvia which increases saturation I only brought down the brightness. I love the ability to shoot in square or the 16:9 ratio. Fantastic. :)

  2. The bokeh shots are interesting – fun to experiment! I really like the light of ‘Last light …’ – it has an oil painting feel to it which is odd considering the cars …..

  3. Lovely pictures, I think my fav bokeh shot is the first one and the last shot of the Rue de Rivoli is my personal fav of the non bokeh shots..

I would love to know what you thought of this article...

Hello, this is me! I was at my Dad's birthday party at the weekend so I grabbed a camera and took a shot, I'm a jeans & white tee shirt girl really. I'm Vegetarian, I love to read, especially poetry and the classics. I'm crazy about Photography and have been obsessed for about six years, it's such a progressive hobby. I love to be out on the fells with my puppy. I've been writing a photo blog at www.helensjournal.wordpress.com for about four years. I'm learning to play guitar - I'm a slow learner, I sketch and paint too, but only seem to do this when inspiration strikes. I'm a Myers Briggs INFJ. #thisisme #INFJ #helensjournal Japanese Maple at Elterwater, I didn't get many landscape images this day due to the overcast sky, but it made a wonderful backdrop for fall foliage. ❤️🍁❤️🍁 #lakedistrict #fall #autumn #autumnleaves Happy September 🍂🍁🍂🍁 Autumn is my favourite time of year, cardigans, scarves, crunchy leaves & those morning mists.. #autumn #fall #autumnleaves On my last evening in NYC I climbed up some scaffold on Lexington Ave and shot yellow cab, tail-light bokeh. 🚕🚕 #fujilove #outoffocus #fujifilm_uk #fujiusers #fujifilmx100s #bokeh #nyc #bokehlicious It's National Dog Day today, here's my constant companion Honey, she's an orange roan coloured Cocker Spaniel and she has the sweetest personality. 🐶🐶🐶 #nationaldogday #cockerspaniel Patience paid off waiting for the sun to get very low on the horizon at Budle Bay. Take me back to the beach 😊⚓️ #Northumberland #fujilove #fujifilmxt1 #calledtobecreative #loveofphotography #fujifilm_uk
