Short Update

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 3, 2014, 10:30 AM


Hello Everybody :aww:
I hope all of you are doing well ?

This is just a short update to let all of you know that i am still alive.
I had my final exams a few weeks ago and all in all it went pretty well.
( i still have to take two oral examinations and i am kinda afraid of that but hopefully they will be okay as well )

Since i had to study quite a bit i wasn't able to take as many photos.
( moreover i am one of these people that are pretty unmotivted in general in winter :D )
I am so happy that it is starting to get warm now and that there are flowers everywhere.

When i am done with school i will have about 3 month of freetime until i am going to start studying in a university in october.
( for me it is a really weird thought that i will be living on my own in about half a year from now Sweating a little...  )
But since i am going to study a subject where i can take photography classes i hope that i will also improve my skills in photography !

Oh and thank you for all your Birthday wishes !

Well...that is all i have to say.
What about you? Any interesting news? :huggle:







Happy New Year !

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 1, 2014, 11:13 AM

I really hope that you have spent a nice New Year's Eve

and that all of you gonna have an awesome 2014 ♥

( i filmed some heart firework for you :D )

I am really sorry that i don't spend that much time on DeviantArt anymore :saddummy:
Even thought i upload some photos once in a while i am not active at all.
( writing journals, features, polls, commenting aso. )
And to be honest i don't really know why, it's not that i am that busy or anything.
I guess it mostely is because of the fact that i am really uncreative at the moment.... but i am trying to change that !

The last year was awesome photography wise, i spent so much time taking photos and really enjoyed it ♥
Concearning real life it was a really boring year, nothing special happened at all, life just went on as usual.

Next year will be different, i will take my exams and finish school !
That's a huge step for me since i will go to an university afterwards and i will have to move out from home.
I kinda decided what i want to study ( something concearning media ) even if i am not 100 % sure about it i will try it !

Well that's all.

I mainly just wanted to thank all of you for being a big part of my life this year and supporting me :tighthug:

Shaped Bokeh ( Tutorials and Feature )

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 25, 2013, 6:09 AM


Since i got asked a lot how i do the shaped bokeh photos i decided to write a short journal about it :aww:
I won't write my own tutorial since there are already a lot of great tutorials out there and i do the absolutely same thing :D


First some "normal bokeh" tutorials :



Bokeh in Macro Shots Tutorial by Jules1983  Photography tutorial - Bokeh by Nariscuss  Bokeh tutorial by lieveheersbeestje          

            and the Wiki Article : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

most important facts :





            - aperature as big as possible -> small number ( i use the canon 50mm 1.8 )
            - some sort of light to create visible bokeh ( e.g. christmas lights )
            - put the main subject as far away from the lights as possible



How do you get the bokeh in special shapes?




How to make bokeh by KatherineDavis  Shaped Bokeh How-To by YellowEleven  Shaped Bokeh Tutorial by BlackCarrionRose



www.diyphotography.net/diy_cre…                                

www.iheartfaces.com/2011/12/sh…                               

                               

most important facts :






            formula for the size of your hole :
            focal lenght / aperature number = size of the hole in mm
            example : 50mm / 1.8 = 27,28mm
            ( it's always better to make it a little bit smaller )


Don't want to cut The shapes out yourself?




 




             since i am lazy i bought a bokeh kit from ebay : www.ebay.com/itm/231050280350?…
             It's not cheap (got even more expensive since i bought it ) but very useful
             Another well known site to buy a bokeh kit is : www.bokehmasterskit.com/buy/
             You just have to decide if and where you want to buy a kit yourself :aww:

             Another tip : you can print bokeh shapes on transparent paper : www.diyphotography.net/using-t…
             Here are two templates :
             kerioke.files.wordpress.com/20…
             callalilycreative.com/wp-conte…
             ( you can also create them yourself with photoshop or sth. similar )

Any more questions? Please ask ♥
