As the holiday season is here festive lights are appearing all around us, and there is no better time to pick up a new photography skill involving lights. Adorama has released a new Create No Matter What Creative Challenge: Bokeh Photography. For background, Bokeh derives from the Japanese word for “blur” and is the effect of light when it’s out of focus.
