Bokeh: a Japanese term for the subjective aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image
To a photographer who is just starting out, this topic is SO exciting. I remember the first time I grasped this concept, it was the photo above taken of my daughter in Flagstaff, Arizona. It was an a-ha moment. You can even blur the front and the back as shown in the first photo. I love getting this depth in my photographic work, but as I learn more, I also realize that the blur should be DELIBERATE. That is my “tip of the day” for beginning photographers.
Let’s go to Breeze Floyd | North Stonington, CT photographer to see what she did with “bokeh”. If it was anything like that week (were you not in awe?), I am sure it will be nothing less than AMAZING. Have a great weekend, everyone!
