My first bokeh ~

Although I’ve been doing fine-art photography for years (you can see some of my work here) and been in many juried shows, the superb photography that Son of Sharecroppers has been doing, especially with shallow depth of field, has inspired me to try some different things. I finally bought a 50 mm f1.8 prime for my Pentax DSLR and think I’ll enjoy playing around with it. Now I can actually get bokeh!

(Bokeh refers to the strongly out-of-focus area of the photo and to that area’s aesthetic quality. “My first bokeh” is not really proper usage.)
