I am in no means a professional photographer, but that doesn't mean I can't share my love of photography with you guys anyways!
When I first got into DSLR photography, I was really interested on more than just taking a picture. ANYONE can point and shoot, but what else can this piece of equipment do??
Turns out a whole bunch of really awesome stuff, my favorite by far being the custom bokeh shapes.
My love of bokeh was sparked by photographer Brandon Woelfel (shocking, i know) who use bokeh in a tonnnnn of his images (check out his work here http://www.brandonwoelfel.com/photography-1/).
Anywho, below is a video of how I create the different shapes, In my experience, the smaller the f-stop the better to really get those distinct shapes.
Leave a comment below if you try this out or if you have recommendations for other shapes to try!
My current go to, easy dessert for everything chocolate! People are always really surprised when I tell them I’ll make a chocolate soufflé on a weekly basis (yes, it’s THAT good) but it really is as simple as only 3 ingredients!
Souffle is light and fluffy, not overly filling or heavy like a rich chocolate cake. These personal size soufflé are also great because it’s like having your own oven fresh mini cake any time you want it! Leave a comment below if you give it a try!
