Today is a great day for an excuse to have some chocolate goodness! Make yourself a nice hot cup of cocoa and then play with composition. If you still have Christmas treats around, you can add them to the photo.
If you want to capture bokeh, make sure you use a lens where you can get a nice wide aperture of 2.8 or below. Focus on your subject and then the background will explode with bokeh goodness! When you are composing, think about dishes, accents and other interesting additions. I use my Christmas snowman dishes all winter long. You might have a cute mug to show off; or pretty napkins to enhance the scene. Use different angles and accessories until the photo captures what you want.
Hot cocoa anyone?
