The subjects must show face, neck and some degree of shoulders. Anything else is up to you, however there must be no other living human in the shot. Each member is allowed to enter 2 shots provided the main subjects are different. Finally put a border and title watermark on your shot.

!!!BOKEH PHOTOGRAPHY!!! Challenge finished on Monday, 25 Nov 2013 Bokeh is the quality of out-of-focus or “blurry” parts of the image rendered by a camera lens – it is NOT the blur itself or the amount of blur in the foreground or the background of a subject. The blur that you are so used to seeing in photography that separates a subject from the background is the result of shallow “depth of field” and is generally simply called “background blur”. The quality and feel of the background/foreground blur and reflected points of light, however, is what photographers call Bokeh. Read more: http://photographylife.com/what-is-bokeh#ixzz2jeriODKs
