Voigtlander Bokeh balls

Posted | Views: 2,908
I photographed Christmas light to get some bokeh balls and I got a unique effects with my Voigtlander 40mm (f/2 SL IIS)lens. 

If you look closely, you'll see circles expanding from the middle of each ball. I've never seen bokeh balls like this before. The lights used may have been LED, although I'm not sure, or even if that is what caused the effect. 

This was taken with Kodak Portra 800 film using a Nikon FM2n camera. I set the focus to infinity and the aperture to f/2.
