10 minute Photo Project
Here is a great little project that you can do in your own house with no specialist equipment. It will take you no more than 10 minutes and the results are pretty awesome!
All you will need is you camera, some tin foil, something to shoot, and some natural light.
All you need to do is get some tin foil and scrunch it up. Then find yourself somewhere with lots of natural light.
Make yourself a nice little curve and pop your product quite close to the front leaving as much distance between the product and the background.
Now we can set the camera up.
Pop the camera into Aperture Priority Mode (A or Av)
Set the aperture to the lowest F number you lens will go to. For best results use a 50mm lens at F1.8.
Take a test shot and see what your shutter speed is, if its too low you will blur the image. If this is the case you will need to raise your ISO to compensate.
The combination of the light hitting the tin foil and the shallow depth of field should give you some beautiful Bokeh in the background.
