A daily activity of mine is to read about cameras and photography techniques. One reoccurring topic is how to achieve decent bokeh (out of focus blur). Many people maintain that a large camera sensor paired with a fast lens is almost obligatory. While it’s true, that combination of equipment will result in magnificent bokeh I don’t believe its always necessary. Sometimes, when working with limited resources one must be willing to approach a scene from a different angle.
The above photo for instance:
focal length: 30mm (81mm full frame equivalent)
That is by no means a fast aperture setting, and no, the bokeh present is not the sort of creamy goodness you would find with a full frame sensor (my nikon v1 has a very tiny sensor!) but it’s still effective and, in my opinion, beautiful.
I think I’ll put this one up on the photo store. I’ll let you all know when it’s available!
