Good bokeh photography is when the out-of-focus part of the image creates an aesthetically pleasing effect, and to bring the in-focus part of the image into sharper focus. The word ‘Bokeh‘ is derived from the Japanese word ‘Boke’, which translates to ‘blur’ or ‘haze’. As is to be expected, the bokeh effect is achievable through Photoshop and can become the main ‘focus’ of the image – even though it is the ‘out-of-focus’ part!
Bokeh is used more and more in films – there are not many films made these days that don’t include some bokeh lighting effects somewhere. We have mentioned bokeh effect used in web design, and today we are going to touch on bokeh in photography.
