Fun with Bokeh06:32
Bokeh is the Japanese originated concept of the difference between out of focus areas of an image due to lens design.. The word comes from Japanese language, which literally translates as “blur”. A simple explanation is, the quality of out of focus blur.. Producing nice bokeh involves creating a shallow depth of field.. The blur that you are so used to seeing in photography that separates a subject from the background is the result of shallow “depth of field” and is generally simply called “background blur”. The quality and feel of the background / foreground blur and reflected points of light, however, is what photographers call Bokeh. .
