    1-9-21 - BOKEH EFFECT
    I used a free bokeh overlay, added it to a b/w photo of Shelby (19 weeks) in the photo shoot where I was the photographer.
    I then used TLP Morning Ritual Collab kit - papers and things plus a template that was included (moved things around and removed some items).

    I wanted to keep the focus on the photo so the bokeh effects would show well so I did a simple design like a framed picture for the wall.

    Not the best photo, composition-wise, but I like it with the bokeh effect.

    I personally prefer them on nature backgrounds or uncluttered backgrounds--in some of the images I've seen on the first page, they've been used with photos where the background was mostly a solid colored wall and another where it was a wooden table. Do you celebrate Christmas and have a Christmas tree? I love bokeh on Christmas tree photos! Anything with candles or other lights? I haven't decided what I'll try it on yet, but maybe a menorah photo or picture of a string of lights we had up for the holidays.
