Jar of Stars by Sarah-BK Jar of Stars by Sarah-BK
Jar of stars, jar of wishes, jar of dreams :heart:

Description
Another of those photos that just gets lost on my HD. I take so much more than uploads can handle - a photography addict if you will ^^;

This is to go along with my Bokeh Origami series (I guess having 3 photos based on photographing origami and bokeh now makes me eligible to make a series out of it?). I might put some more thought into more of such photos - but right now I have so many photos on my laptop it's going to explode :la: Result of getting a new lens and traveling over a couple of months :P

These are cute little stars made from strips of paper - I had a sudden craze over them at the end of last year and spent hours folding more stars than this jar could hold :giggle: All the time I spent folding them I had this picture in my head. Now you get to see it (:

Bokeh is real :heart:


Equipment
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM
Post-processing in Adobe Photoshop CS5

What a beautiful photo! :love:

First off, I love that you added some meaning behind the photo! I see so many jar/bokeh shots, but they really don't touch the reader emotionally at all. When I look at this, I actually feel the peacefully and warmness that radiate from the jar, and I can also relate more with the quote you added in the description. Wonderful work!

I also love your choice of a simple, dark background. The purple contrasts beautifully with the yellows, pinks, and light blues from the jar - as well as the bokeh! :nod:

The focus also works extremely well for this photo. The foreground is sharp and in detail, and while it's not a huge difference, the bokeh and background is blurred which adds depth to the photo and also draws our eye to the foreground.

The photo does seem to have a slight horizontal tilt which I noticed early on - but honestly, that's the only thing I'd change here!

Beautiful photo, keep shooting :clap:

I love this shot, it's very delicate and I can't ever seem to get the bokeh to look this nice. Well done !! :) :3

Thank you so much :)

What lenses do you have, and do you know how to use manual settings on your camera?

:iconpatricia-lehmann:
Patricia-Lehmann Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeh I always shoot in manual and I have a 80-105mm lens so the lowest aperture I can get is 3.5. I'm getting another lens soon so I'll try it again :)
