    Finally I feel like I will be able to start creating my own unique images for my website rather than trawling through image sites and ‘borrowing’ other peoples! Thank you x

  2. Melanie says:

    Oh Louise what an awesome tutorial – I going to try this one out, the effect is stunning! Thank you again for sharing your expertise with us.

  3. Mel says:

    Brilliant tutorial, thank you! I’ve sweated blood trying to create this effect, so this was really helpful. 🙂 I now have 10 months to get it right before xmas!

  4. Molly says:

    Thank you! I was considering purchasing a bokeh backdrop, but this is FAR more preferable! (And I love that you can play around with different colored lights.) Thanks again! p.s. Your girls are BEAUTIFUL!

    Hello Lou, do you need to get a low f stop? Some lenses do not go lower than f3,8. Is it still possible to get the bokeh?

    • LouiseGlendon says:

      Hi Stefanie, yes, just go with the lowest that your lens will allow, so sometimes that will even be f/5.6… and make sure you have a good distance between the subject and the background, and you’ll still be able to achieve the bokeh.

  6. Roland Roosenboom says:

    Hi Louise. Not exactly the answer I was looking for. I’m trying to figure out how to make an interactive Christmas card, that I can Email to friends & family, where the actual background lights twinkle on and off when they open the card in their Email. The other option is to be able to post it on Facebook with interactive twinkling lights.

    • LouiseGlendon says:

      Wow, that sounds pretty interesting Roland, I’ve certainly never done that before… I think you may need to create an animation or gif!
      Goodluck with it! Xx
