Amazing Bokeh Photography: When Beauty Is Out of Focus
Bokeh is a popular photographic technique which reflects the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Originally, the word “bokeh” didn’t have “h” at the end as it comes from the Japanese word “boke”, which literally means blur, dizziness. Bokeh effect is often used to reduce background distractions and highlight the main subject. However, you can find lots of images where bokeh is, actually, the primary subject. It has got an extreme popularity in various photo genres, like still life, urban, nature and people photography. Bokeh makes an ordinary image look special that’s why many artists add this effect artificially in image editors by means of brushes and textures.
