Saw some recent postings about DIY bokeh’s and just in time for the holidays.
Here are some awesome effects of different Christmas Tree bokehs.
How to make your own heart shaped bokeh.
And another great bokeh tutorial.
I spent a couple hours out at Ballona last night playing with my new 1D Mk III but unfortunately there just wasn’t that much around so I didn’t get to shoot too many pictures. I was, however, blown away with how faster the auto-focus is on the 1D compared to my 40D. Not only that, the AI servo tracks incredibly well on moving targets. Since I’ll be busy packing the next couple days, I don’t think I’ll have any time to play with it more before we leave for the Galapagos Friday morning. Here’s a few of the shots I managed to rattle off yesterday:
After seeing all the photographers at Crane Creek with 1D bodies, I decided to give into the “hype” that Artie and the rest of the gang have been raving about. It just arrived and I’m charging the batteries as we speak. I hope to get out to Ballona this afternoon to try it out!
Stay tuned for images from the 1D later this evening….
