Lights, camera, action, shoot!

Tutorials and Resources
- Forced perspective with bokeh: [link]
- Bounce lighting: [link]

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D + IR remote. f/1.8 for max depth of field. Christmas lights hung in the background. See the tutorial above on how to do forced perspective bokeh shots. SB-600 for bounce lighting against a white wall. The camera in the photo is an Argus C3. Minor curves in post editing to darken blue midtones to bring out warmer hues.

Additional Comments
Got some new clear Christmas lights so it's back to bokeh shots :giggle: Trying out artificial bounce lighting with the technique. Same line as:

OMG! This is so amazing! :squee: Why didn't I see this before??? :faint:

It's so simple, it's just a camera with bokeh in the background: any photograph would have though of that.
but this is so unique, I don't know how come! There's something that I admire very much of the person who took this picture.
And it's so elegant!
