A little definition:
- In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. ...
- Pronounced 'bo-key', this terms refers the quality or smoothness of the 'blur' of areas not in focus.
- Bokeh describes the rendition of out-of-focus points of light. Differing amounts of spherical aberration alter how lenses render out-of-focus points of light, and thus their bokeh. The word "bokeh" comes from the Japanese word "boke" (pronounced bo-keh) which literally means fuzziness or dizziness.
(derived from Japanese word "boke", meaning 'blur') - In photography, refers to the creative use of lens blur as a composition technique. The aim of bokeh is to deliberately blur the background or foreground (or both) in order to draw the viewer's attention to a particular area of the photo
OK, so my perfect Bokeh photo would be at Christmas time, focusing on a beautiful ornament on the tree, with the lights in the background, slightly blurred. But it's not Christmas, so I used the outdoors.
