Wow. Ok, ok. Geez. So we can still take suggestions for, like.....next Friday. Don't kill me.
I love the birds idea, LoriFla. Yeah. Birdies.
Nine-tenths of flickr is totally obsessed with bokeh right now. There's even a Bokeh Wednesday. If you check pop urls every day obsessively (like I do) you'll see tons of bokeh photos featured - they're super popular. It's basically just an out of focus background.
You're welcome ;) My camera is crappy for bokeh, unfortunately. It has auto focus and no manual focus. Isn't that the stupidest thing ever? But I do love to look at the pretties that other people come up with.....
I was all "wtf is bokeh". OK, I like bokeh. It helps the subject pop out from the background, and is interesting in itself. I knew what it was, just didn't know the word.
I had a mini-rant about dSLRs and auto/manual focus yesterday. Try setting your camera in aperture prioroty mode with the aperture wide open, if you want to try for this effect. Have some distance between your subject and the background.
