Today is Thursday, September 10, 2009. Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is FOREGROUND BOKEH.
Bokeh is the pleasing out of focus effect caused by shooting a scene with a wide aperture. Often we think of bokeh as an effect that causes the background to be blurry. However, for today’s challenge, try to reverse that effect so that the foreground of your image has the bokeh. To do this, set your aperture wide, and focus on something in the distance. It might take a few tries, but have fun with it and don’t give up!
Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge253“. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
