Bokehing a Day in the Life
This past Thursday featured an event called A Day in the Life of MIT – an event I helped organize. The photographers uploaded nearly 3000 pictures (as of this afternoon) documenting all facets of MIT life.
In keeping with the theme of photographic exploration, I decided to experiment a little with bokeh photography. After a brief test with an extremely boring triangular aperture, I quickly moved on to a much more aggressive cut:
I got some interesting stuff, in spite of the fact that it was literally impossible to focus with that cap in place. I didn’t have the tripod or the patience to remove the cap, focus, and replace the cap before taking each picture, but you can see what I managed below.
