bubble bokeh

My new addition to my kit arrived yesterday. Prime lenses are da bomb.

Canon 35mm f1.4L II. Its sublime...

... and I took it out for a test drive in the late afternoon light yesterday.

In the latest Scrapbooking Memories is a LO called Love (pg 75) by Lizzy Hill that really caught my eye. I've kept coming back to it and looking at it wondering how did she do that background.  I contacted her and she very kindly explained how to achieve it, and that led me to this idea with the bubbles in the photo as I really wanted the bokeh look.  (The LO isn't on her blog yet as its been removed from public display because of its publication.)

Thank Lizzy. These photos happened because of you. x

Ohhh how very cool is that! I love the effect. I've not seen the latest SBM, but am now keen to see Lizzy's creation.
