I took this picture this morning out in my yard. I have been reading a lot about using light to create different photographic effects and I was really excited to see some "bokeh" in my pictures. Basically "bokeh" are those fuzzy, blurry spheres you sometimes see in the background. The cool thing is that you can manipulate the shape of the bokeh as it takes on the shape of the lense. As standard lenses are spherical, the bokeh is spherical. However you can make a heart shaped lense cover that will cause your bokeh to appear heart shaped. Read more about it here. Heart-shaped bokeh...that is going to be my next project
