Fairy Tree

Sometimes, out of nowhere, I’ll catch sight of something that will make me get my camera out and shoot. It’s the reason I still carry my camera everywhere. Often before now, these little isolated shots would not see the light of day, but lately I’ve been determined to share these little images with you, even though there isn’t enough to warrant a ‘full-length’ post.

So a few weeks ago, whilst standing outside a coffee shop with some family, I noticed we were standing under a tree that was still (this being some six weeks after Christmas) wrapped in fairy lights.

Having my 50mm f/1.4 in use at the time, I realised this could be a nice opportunity to retread some of my previous experiments in fairy light bokeh.

Shooting from right under the tree meant I could get the lights on varying degrees of focus.

1/640sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, 50mm
1/800sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, 50mm

As I often do, I took several photographs of the same thing in slightly different ways, and then failed to pick just one.

1/800sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, 50mm
1/1000sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, 50mm
1/800sec, f/1.4, ISO 100, 50mm

So far this has been a bit of a year of beautiful fairy light bokeh. I will have to have seek out some more, because I find I am rather partial to it.
