Best of 2012

Uschi framed by the lights of an enormous holiday tree

I was actually really torn when it came to picking the absolute best photo I took last year. I’m still very much a novice when it comes to photography and I’m very much in the learning process with my new camera. But one of the reasons I upgraded to a DSLR was the ability to create bokeh and have that lovely dreamy effect with the lights from a Christmas tree. Sometime later this year I hope to invest in some new, more powerful lenses than the standard kit one I currently have, but I’m still immensely proud of and pleased with this photo.

I’m also quite fond of these, some of which were featured in my year in pictures post:

  1. Great photos! Are you sure you’re not a professional?! The bokah is really cool in the top photo, I’m amazed at how people create that effect. Happy 2013, looking forward to following you.
