Photographing live performers in front of a giant & lit-up christmas tree using the 135mm f2.0L lens… = BOKEH WONDERLAND.
There are so many colourful orbs it’s almost distracting. Gotta love that lens though.
The downside to relying on f 2.0 while you’re shooting moving & dancing performers is the fact that focus is nearly impossible. It’s very lucky when you get a shot where the performer is perfectly on the focal plane of the f2 aperture… but when you do, it looks great.
As well, the downside to shooting crunched down like at f2.8 is that those glorious round orbs of colour from the bokeh turn into octagons and.. well, that’s just no fun.
