Here are some tips to get you started with bokeh photography:
1.) Larger aperture works best, so use a low f-stop number like f1.4, f1.8 or f2.8. I like using the Canon 50mm f1.8 or the 35mm f1.4 for this project.
2.) Set your camera to aperture priority.
3.) You would need to set the shutter speed faster than 1/50 second. Any slower and I find the background lights getting blurred together, instead of rendering small circles. If it’s too dark, increase the ISO level rather than the f-stop number.
4.) The closer you get to subject, the better. If you’re using a zoom lens, extend it to the longest focal length.
5.) The further away the background, the better.
6.) Ensure that the background is lit. Glowing lights like street lamps and traffic lights work best. While a consistently lit background would just create a regular blur.
7.) If you don’t have a subject and want to create the bokeh effect with the night lights, manually focus your camera.

Ladies, if you want to become fashion models, gather your face powders, lipsticks, nail polish and cremes, and start a cosmetics fight! While you’re at it, also make sure there’s a professional photographer there to take pictures, and when you run out of cosmetics, try paint — it works equally well.
When we talk about capturing beauty and glamour we can’t ignore the role of fashion photography .
