In my mind I had an idea that garland, tinsel, reflective materials would make for some nice bokeh if you’re taking pictures indoors. I guess it would work outside also, if you were to drape it over some plants. Yesterday I had mentioned about the pink Christmas tree I got for $5. I decided to use it as the background for these yellow Peruvian lilies. I really like the way it came out.
A little more technical info on how I shot this – to get the pink tree to “sparkle” I used the LED on my cell phone and moved it in different directions.

On my other blog, DS Photography, I tried the above using a carved “swimming” turtle from Palau.
