Catch a star

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

An aper­ture of f/13 or nar­rower turns bare light bulbs and street lights into so-called star­bursts. De­pend­ing on the type of lens and size of the aper­ture you’ll get dif­fer­ent shaped star­bursts, but it’s best not to go above f/16 as the lens will start to in­tro­duce dif­frac­tion, which soft­ens the whole im­age. It’s a trade-off be­tween sharp im­ages on the one hand, and bril­liant lights on the other.
