Gardens on Spring Creek
Katherine and I went down to the Garden of Lights, an event that the Gardens on Spring Creek put on every year. There are a ton of lights and it's a great spot to go take photos. This year, I tried a new technique, called Bokeh. I 3D printed a filter holder and printed out a new aperture in the shape of a star. The problem is that you need a lens with a very wide aperture (f/2 or lower). My widest aperture lens I own is f/3.5. In order for this to work, I had to zoom way in (300mm). It wasn't ideal, but I think I got some great shots for my very first time trying this new technique. Maye It will inspire me to buy a new lens.
