Field Review: Bokeh Masters Kit (Day 1)

Exposure 6 Aperture f/1.8 Focal Length 50 mm ISO Speed 250

I adore the look of Bokeh—which is the out of focus blur in images. It is so very pleasing to my senses. I was very intrigued when I learned I could actually shape bokeh and I was yet more fascinated when I found out about the Bokeh Masters Kit, and optics kit that allows you to get creative with light.

Nikon 50mm F/1.8


First use

Using the Bokeh Masters kit is a test in how well you can see and use light. The Bokehtinator mounts on your lens and drops down your light a few stops. At first use I tried ssing it I only shot at F/1.8 with an ISO speed of 200. With the Bokehtinator the I did not get good shots at first. My lighting was the problem. Basically you need well lit subjects with contrasting object in the background. Low light subjects are not recommended. The best lenses for the bokeh kit are any wide aperture lens that can open wider that than f/2.8 with a thread size no bigger than 62mm. There is a slight learning curve with the Bokehtinator. The essence of this is the quality of the light you use.
