    Hi Dan,
    This is a gorgeous capture! The bokeh in the background is truly beautiful, not to mention the flowers in sharp focus in the foreground. :

    I'm with all these folks who love your stuff Dan, you are a master of flower bokehgraphy - I love the lone Cosmos (some of the bokeh looks like an impressionist painting, with the lovely thick flower stems)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Leica, Klaus, & Keith, thank you for your kind words, they are appreciated.

    I was out Sunday for a few hours shooting with the Contax G 45/2 and 90/2.8 . . . . .

    . . . . . the output from the two lens is always very good and do love the sharpness that can be captured with the wonderful bokeh when wide open.

    Last night I posted a few from the 90, tonight a few from the 45.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Lovely shots and lovely flowers, is there a garden you go to for all these pictures?

    I was also wondering if anyone's used the 50mm Nikon lenses on a M4/3 body. I've got a 50/1.8 AIS but the adapter isn't here yet, can't wait to get it

    There are a number of P-Patches (public vegetable and flower gardens) as well as house gardens in the area. A side benefit of all the rain and moisture we get in Seattle!


    . . . . . I do not have any Nikon lenses at this point in time. Patience . . . . .

    Until they install P-Patches in Toronto, you have an unfair advantage

    Are they the same as allotments in the UK?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    **********BOKEHGRAPHY BIRTHDAY**********

    Yes, Tuesday September 7 marks the birthday of the Bokeh thread – we will be just one year old.

    The thread has gathered a lot of interest, and it looks like we are number two in replies and three in views in the 4/3 forum.

    To celebrate we need an event. Dan (seakayaker), has suggested a one day extravaganza where everyone who has posted in the past year can put up two of their own images, that are their favorites – with comments. Why do you like it – and why is is it special to you? We usually comment on other poster’s images – now’s the time to comment on your own stuff.
    I looked through all the images I have posted and quickly realized that picking two was not easy – everyone will go through this. But, it will be lovely to see why we post on this thread – what is it about our Bokehgraphy images that turn our crank.

    So – the rules are:
    One day only – our birthday, Tuesday, September 7, 2010. Our days are different depending where we are in the world. Just use your day – Sept 7.
    Post two of your own favorite images – together or apart. Briefly describe why you like what you have done in creating the image

    As Dan said, " . . . .like going to the gallery"


    Any suggestions or comments are welcome

    I'll pop up a few reminders in the next few days

    Keith

    Yes, but on a smaller scale!

    http://www.cityofseattle.net/neighbo.../locations.htm

    The closest one to my house is number 12 on the list towards the bottom of the page.

    . . . . . some general information.

    Size: 10,000 sq ft
    Established: 1981
    Relocated: 1998
    Expanded: 2010
    Number of plots: 50
    Average length of waitlist: 97
    Average wait: 3-5 years, however with expansion work happening right now there is an opportunity to move up the list. See Plot Assignment Guidelines-expansion
    Ownership of land: Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Department of Transportation

    10 x 20 plots and 10 x 10 plots w/ 4 raised beds

    The flowers and vegetables vary and offer a large variety from the garden at home.

    Softness is goodness Plenty of nice stuff in this thread too.

    Does anyone use the EVF to focus manually when doing wide open shots? Or do you use the LCD? I can't quite do all that while shooting handheld so I tend to trust the AF system and pray for the best.

    I use the EVF exclusively, it's good enough to be able to see the bokeh and manipulate the camera and get it right. I know that Michel has said that he takes care to evaluate colours and shapes of bokeh before he presses the button.
    The EVF really is the only way to go when using a tilt adapter. You need it to place the in focus component, as sometimes this is very subtle.

    . . . . . yes, the EVF stays mounted on my GF1 the majority of the time. Always for wide open shots when needing to hit the focus point. I do take it off on occasion if I am taking photographs on the street, at a farmers market or fair if I am looking to get casual shots.

    Keith some lovely shots produced with the Leitz 50/2!

    To determine the age of the Leitz lenses I looked at the following site:

    http://kenrockwell.com/leica/lens-serial-numbers.htm

    . . . . . as you scroll down the page the range of serial numbers by year is listed.

    Excellent bokehgraphs as usual! Here are a couple of images taken with my little ISCO GOTTINGEN WESTROMAT 50mm f1,9.


    Leica, the bokehgraph is stunning!

    Sharp edges on the flower with wonderful colors with the tight circular bokeh!

    . . . . . the ISCO GOTTINGEN WESTROMAT 50mm f1,9 Rocks, it captures great shots, time after time . . . . .

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh


    This photograph really shows the typical Isco...... bokehgraphy!

    BTW Leica77, I love the way you're GF1 looks with the special cover.
    On the edge of buying one but I wait first for all the new goodies to come and see what they bring.

    Here someone from far away was watching me as I took this picture.
    Really scary

    Yes, that was me, Michiel - just making sure you were getting some bokeh in that image (reminds me, I need to get a hair-cut)

    As we were passing by that gate I said to my wife; look that is Keith from overseas with his Bob Dylan coupe from the sixties, watching over the amount of bokeh!

    Hi everyone, here's another with a GF1 & Panasonic 20/1.7. I feel that lens has some harsh bokeh if the background is backlit but a bit of noise reduction in Lightroom reduces it to a nice blur. 8pm summer sun is just plain gorgeous

    Klaus, another beautiful bokehgraph! Love the blue flower!


    Radatax, very nice use of the 20/1.7 to produce the bokeh! Love the first shot with the setting sun, lovely bokeh!

    Hi Michiel, thank you. And you are right, it is a drop of resin on a leaf lightened by the september sun.
