DIY water bokeh'



The bokeh' effect is a really special one, you normally need to use some lights and focus an object that is near to you, so that the lights get out of focus and appear on the photo as small circles! Today I learned by accident another way of getting this effect. 
It was raining and my mom and I were trapped in the traffic, so I started taking photos, and I realized that by using the flash all the little drops looked like circles... just like the lights with bokeh! So I got really exited and started taking more of photos. You can try it to, even if it is not raining! Just find a transparent surface (almost anything works)  add some drops of water to it and place it between your camera and the item you want to photograph, remember to focus the object before and turn ON the flash. It is pretty simple, and the results are lovely. Have a lovely day! Love, Monica & Remi.

  3. I tred it but all I got was the object in focus and some shiny water droplets.....what am I doing different? Did you somehow put the flash on without capturing the picture? Like when I press the shutter button, that's the only way the flash turns on.

    1. yes, actually I first program the flash, while the camera is focused to the object, then just place the water surface without focusing it and press the button :)
