    They will be 80 x 60 cm and the Lightballet 180 x 60 cm (post 680)
    They will be sealed between 2 layers of plexiglas and no framing.
    All for an exhibition I am planning together with some new sculpures of mine.

    This last one is nice but the images have to little spatial depts for my taste.
    It has been and still is a great experience for me to photograph those spatial, smooth colour transitions.
    Thanks to this tread!

    Best regards, Michiel
    Good luck with the exhibition. I went to your website and am very impressed with your work. Your bokeh photos will fit very nicely with your sculpture.

    I'd love to see them!
    Michiel, how will you put them together? I'm planning to exhibit using the plexiglass sandwich system but all the offers I've had here involve using
    corner screws to hold the two plates together and I was looking for some way of doing it without any visible unions.

    It will look like this.


    The material behind the picture is called digibond.
    All glued together, no screws, and four strips on the back to hang it on the wall. Wiil give some distance too, which is nice. The plexiglas sides can be polished.
    Here is a site where you can see it above the red coach. Watch the slides.
    ( this is not where I have it made) http://www.perplex-foto.nl
    It is all in Dutch, so that is easy

    Terrible the way people spell Dutch on international forums these days.
    It should be meneer or mijnheer (little old fashioned)
    The rest is just perfect
    Hope I don't make one of my many spelling mistakes in English soon.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I've been spending a lot of time in the blending threads, and forgot the good old bokehgraph.

    This one is taken with the G1 and kit zoom in Batumi Georgia.

    Single image, no blending or textures - tends to push the image much more to abstraction. You have to dig deep to get the detail out.

    But it is much quicker than blending if that's the kind of image that you are looking for (they tend to turn out with the look of Turner paintings)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I was just looking at all the wonderful images on this thread, and I thought we should do a "reprise." I'll put on a couple a week, just so we don't lose sight of the creativity of the people here.

    This one is from Leica 77. I love the simplicity and structure of the image.

    If you have a favorite, please reprise it.

    Hi Keith,

    Many thanks for your kind comments. Doing a "reprise" is an excellent idea. I will go over your Bokeh thread within the next few days and come up with a selection of favorite images. Once again, it has been my profound pleasure contributing images (bokehgraphs) to your wonderful thread. Trust all is well at your end. All the best, Leica 77.

    45-200mm zoom lens:



    It has some of that "swirly" bokeh that I've seen on the 45mm macro and so many C mount lenses!

    Hi Keith,
    Great image and I really like its title -- "Biological Rocket Science". Kind regards, Leica 77.

    Yeah, that was certainly a good one, Keith
    Not so much bokeh on my mind lately but here is one from tonight.
    Took it while walking at F 22 and it took about a minute or so.

    Keith, This is one of my favourites of yours.
    It has a subconscious historical look about it which is intriging, I think.
    This is happening in more of your bokehgraphs.

    I am trying to get something out of my shots of the Falklands battle fields, but I am not happy with them yet. Trying to use Mike's techniques, which are tricky to get right

    I'm going through my bokegraphs from this lens to check this out. This looks like an ideal test venue to measure swirly bokeh, but I think it may only be available for a few hours at a time?

    Nice image

    Do I see a new thread here - walking at f8, walking at f11 ... ? Come on folks, get your ND filters out

    I like these walking shots of yours, Michael. I will have to go out and buy some neutral density filters
    It would be interesting to couple a lensbaby on there too

    Some of your lens testing shots should have gone in here too

    Thank you Keith for the kind words.

    Regarding the use of "excentrifugal," it's a reference to a song by the regretted Frank Zappa.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi !

    it's been a long time since I've posted in this thread. I love all the pictures shown here, but I am no good in PP, so all the masks, .... are very difficult for me.

    This is still a very simple bokehgraph :

    Hi Abbazz,

    Beautiful bokeh of the green leaves! Some Jupiter lenses are reputed to produce pleasing bokeh such as the one you have. Best regards.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Michael


    I have received my tilt adapter from Italy (m4/3 to M42) and it looks good - well made and fits well.

    Here is a test image using the Pentax 50/1.4 (my favorite bokeh lens)

    I seem to be able to get selective focus and maintain the bokeh

    I'll post a bit more about this adapter on the blends thread.

    Hi Keith,

    Wow! This is one of the most creative bokehgraphs I have seen in this thread. The tilt adapter seems to work beautifully using your favorite bokeh lens -- the Pentax 50/1.4. I love the duality of having both selective focus and bokeh! Great work! Best regards, Leica 77.

    This is still a very simple bokehgraph :

    Hi Raf:

    I think bokehgraphs are still about simplicity. Most of mine are single image using the sliders in PS. If I do more with blends etc, then they go over to the blends threads.

    This image of the snowstorm is beautiful - so many colors in there.

    I love this one - a very powerful image, with a story behind it.

    Very nice bokehgraphs! I like them all.

    Here is my contribution entitled "Z". All the best.

    Leica - one of your best!

    The simplicity of the composition along with the electric colors - I think I see a Z in there?

    Hi Keith,
    Many thanks for your positive comments. I love this cropped image even more than the original one! Beautiful bokeh and nice texture. It's a pretty powerful image! All the best, Leica 77.

    Love this Z!

    Thanks for the compliment, those Jupiter-3 lenses sell for very little money with regard to their abilities.

    Cheers!
