Sunday Creative Post - Week of August 29th

I have been following the "Creative Sunday" posts of Madeline Bea Photography for sometime now. Prior to building this blog, I only posted my weekly challenge pictures on facebook and Flickr. Starting this week I will post my work here as well.

This week's theme is "illuminate." It was really challenging for me to find something creative to photograph other than the common lighting captured by so many already - candles, lamps, sunlight, moon, etc. I wanted to stretch my creative self.

As my family and I were riding in the car the other night, I was playing with my camera. I used manual focus for the first time! I loved the bokeh that I got with MF wayyyyyy better than when I used AF for this particular shot.

The blue is a headlight from an oncoming car. The two reds are tail lights from the car in front of us. The orange ones are the highway lamp posts. I love how all the lights are converging into one point on the left bottom side.

1/60 f5.6 80mm ISO1600
