Podacst Episode 5: Dreaming of a White Christmas

Switch to manual focus and unfocus your camera lens for a lovely bokeh shot.

So, here it is finally, the fifth episode of the Journal of Curious Things Podcast.  I'm sorry it's been a while and it's looking more and more as though monthly is going to be a more realistic schedule.  Anyway, below are the show notes and peppered throughout are Christmas photos and little photography hints and tips.

Looking out for striking colour combinations or slightly more unusual visions of the season can make for interesting photos.

And trust me: ginger biscuits and white maltesers.  A winner every time.

This is actually the new and improved model, but here it's around £80

You can find a couple of my album pages here.

So much more than a border punch :D

Using a wider aperture will let in lots of light and create a dreamy quality to photos.

Get as close in as you can to Christmas lights and decorations for detail.

The slightly yellow look of lights can also sometimes create warmth.  But hold the camera steady!
