    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you Mike,

    I noticed this shot is very related to your work, which I like much, but not intentional.
    I got very interested in just finding the right light and play with it. Especially when colours are at hand.
    And the EVF helps so much to find the right moment. for Panasonic
    Kind regards, michiel

    Thank you. Trough a shopwindow it is.

    Here is a Mondrian like tree.

    - Circular tree -

    G1 + Revuenon 55/1.2

    It did make me think of this painting by Piet Mondriaan - Red tree -

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Michiel:

    This is a good example of looking at the image in negative space - I was seeing positive until I read your explanation. Looks like with some of Mike's texture you can bring it closer to the Mondrian - which is a painting I had long forgotten, I always associate him with the rectangular blocks of color. But the tree was always one of my favorites.
    Well done.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Here is Funky Hydrangea no 2.

    I'm having a lot of fun with just two images:

    1. Completely out of focus main image
    2. An in focus image of the same flower but dramatically simplified.

    After that, it's in the hands of my learning curve on Photoshop.

    Welcome kds315.
    Nice one and a fast lens ! Indeed it looks like a flame glowing flower.
    I ran into your website once in a while, interesting but a bit above my knowledge Were these mostly used for microscopes?

    Here is my next one as an answer to the UFO invasion

    So glad to have you here. This one is similar to a few that Michiel has done - so I'll leave it for him to do the artistic review. . I see many things in there, but one is Pinocchio and his nose (but forgive me, I've done so many images of that!)

    Please don't let this bokeh thing distract you from the photos on the school run, I love them (this one is definitely not from the school run?) - or, maybe we can see some bokeh landscapes (they are tough to do )

    Two images and a lensbaby - much more refined than my earlier "fall blow" stuff (I think, )

    Welcome to Brian, and Jono. Good Stuff.
    Beautiful image, Mike - I especially like the background (I have dug up my CV 40/1.4, and tomorrow I use it)

    Thanks Jono and Keith.
    I love the cats eye Jono. I've tried to photograph my cat and know how tuff it is to get a shot like that.

    And Keith, I like your last lensbaby shot. I found that the winter is the best time to shoot trees with the lensbaby.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Wow lots of new ones!

    Mike , I love the light in your three photo picture. The leave stands out and the background works well!

    Jono, very nice and a really good lens that is. Smooth rendering. Another financial problem. The first one is my favourite.

    Keith, that is very refined indeed! Looks like Cy Twombly.

    Klaus, also still no winter in the woods of Germany!

    Here is one while waiting for a movie in the cinema.

    Mike - your images make me think so much of the impressionists. If an impressionist had the cameras and software that we have, they would be turning out these images, and figuring out the ways that it could go forward. Where would it end? - in the literal image; I don't think so, it would lead to total abstraction.

    Picasso had a camera, but it was not digital

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Keith,

    I love impressionists paintings, and I do wish sometimes that I was able to paint. Both my parents are painters, so I guess I have that background in me. I have always been trying to go beyond the reality of the camera and make images that are more like paintings. Digital sure makes it easier. I've been doing this style of work for about 15 years. With film, I would tape transparencies together and dupe them in the darkroom, it took forever to get it right. Now, I can make several variations quickly and without all the expense of film. It's a great time to be a photographer.

    Beautiful, as with all your work on this forum. I'd love to know how you "layer these with texture".

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Michael,

    I copied the text (below) that I posted earlier regarding my method. But basically, I shoot textures all the time and combine textures to make new textures. Then I layer them in photoshop and with the layer properties, I set them to different types such as overlay or soft light. And with masks I can control wether or not the texture goes over the entire image. I also use the opacity slider on the texture layer to control the amount. Most of my images have multiple textures and many adjustment layers.

    Mike

    Are you familiar with a site named http://www.chromasia.com
    He does tutorials that are a fair price, and he actually did 2 tutorials on my work with textures that goes in depth in to my work with my examples and how I did it. Here is a more direct link. http://www.chromasia.com/tutorials/online/wwt1_info.php
    It is a two part tutorial using my work and his work. However, if you don't want to get involved with that, just keep playing with different images and try different blend modes on the texture and opacity changes as well as masks to alter part of the textures. I sometimes use multiple textures on top of each other at different strengths. It's not uncommon to end up with 10 or more layers and huge files.
    The chromasia tutorial would be better than a book. I don't make any money from this by the way, so I'm not trying to push his tutorials. He does do a great job of teaching though.
    Hope this helps

    New promos I'm making. Shot with the EP-1. I like them in this format, gives you an idea how they might look framed. All are reflections of trees in water.

    Glad you found this forum, Mike. It's changed my direction with this type of imagery. Very inspirational.

    But, my wife is wondering why I'm crawling around taking pictures of the basement floor and the bathroom carpet!

    Thanks Keith,

    My wife asks the same questions also. She is Czech and when ever we are in Prague, I'm always shooting the old decaying walls and buildings, but they sure make great textures.

Then I layer them in photoshop and with the layer properties, I set them to different types such as overlay or soft light. And with masks I can control wether or not the texture goes over the entire image. I also use the opacity slider on the texture layer to control the amount. Most of my images have multiple textures and many adjustment layers.

    Are you familiar with a site named http://www.chromasia.com
    He does tutorials that are a fair price, and he actually did 2 tutorials on my work with textures that goes in depth in to my work with my examples and how I did it. Here is a more direct link. http://www.chromasia.com/tutorials/online/wwt1_info.php
    It is a two part tutorial using my work and his work. However, if you don't want to get involved with that, just keep playing with different images and try different blend modes on the texture and opacity changes as well as masks to alter part of the textures. I sometimes use multiple textures on top of each other at different strengths. It's not uncommon to end up with 10 or more layers and huge files.
    The chromasia tutorial would be better than a book. I don't make any money from this by the way, so I'm not trying to push his tutorials. He does do a great job of teaching though.
    Hope this helps
    Thank you Mike. I am sorry, I did see this before but my neurons must have taken a wrong turning then and forgot about it completely

    Beautiful work. The black and white result is well suited to this subject too.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you Michiel and Michael. This time of year is my favorite to shoot especially baron trees and reflections. I will post more as I do them. The black and white split tone works really well for these shots because of the contrast and the baron subject matter.
