A Christmas Mason Jar

This photo is showing a Mason Jar with a classic bokeh background composed of Christmas lights. I captured this shot while exploring bokeh for a photography class that I am enrolled in. I thought that Christmas lights would make for a fun and captivating bokeh background so I explored different objects to incorporate within the composition. I stumbled upon a mason jar that I had left out on the counter and decided to see what the results would be when combined with the lights. The results very intriguing and resulted in many well composed photographs.
