A little of Festive Fun

With the Christmas lights up it's that time for a few festive shots

I love the use of Bokeh in a photograph and with Christmas lights up it makes for a great photograph.

This photoshoot was with the lovely Hannah in Bournemouth Winter Gardens. On a cold Tuesday evening, we set off into the gardens using only the light available from the street light and the thousand of bulbs (LEDs) on the Winter Wonderland display.

So many places to choose from and a great selection of images.

Enjoy and you too could have outstanding images for you to cherish by booking a portrait session from me at

Just for a bit of interest bokeh definition is "the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens." The native Japanese speaker and a Product Management Director of Canon is a pretty reliable person to tell you the right pronunciation. And it's “boh-keh,” or /boke/ if you prefer phonetic transcription
