This is my bokeh shot for this week's theme over at Chelsey's Paper Heart Camera blog!! I really was pleased with how this shot came out! I've been using
Used my Speedlite external flash with 90 degree swivel and +3 on flash output (my camera differs when I set the flash manually). I then opened the image in Camera Raw (WHICH I LOVE) in Photoshop CS5 and Auto-Corrected the white balance and adjusted fill light and sharpness. I also found a nice glittery/bokeh overlay to use on it...I adjusted the opacity to about 40% and erased the overlay from santa himself. I hope this helps anyone who is wondering what kind've settings to use indoors or with an external flash. This is by no means the "right" was or "ideal" way but it worked for me and maybe it will help some of you! Thanks for stopping by!
