Bokeh, in photography, is the type of out-of-focus image and is the blur design the lens produce. It gives a pleasing treat to the eyes through the different shapes created, unlike some blurring of the lens that give a displeasing look. Photographers intentionally uses a small depth of field when capturing pictures to be able to create this type of design.

It’s a Blur
A type of conceptual photography, bokeh came from the Japanese word boke meaning “blur” or “haze.” The English spelling of the word, which is bokeh, was made famous around 1997 by Mike Johnston in Photo Technique Magazine. He changed the spelling of the word, claiming the the correct pronunciation was “bo” with bone and “ke” as to Kenneth, with equal stresses in the syllables. Since then, the word bokeh has been known around photography books and magazines.
To save you from the further technical explanation on how bokeh photography is created, we offer here bokeh photos to cater to you in any way you may need them:
- Bokeh Love. This photo contains a simple object in the shape of a heart with a blurred background. A sweet-looking array of small orbs reflected from lights give it a much rather special value to its simpleness.
- Winter Bokeh. Celebrate winter with this bokeh-styled photo. A beautiful scene of a countryside road covered with snow is added with a dramatic effect by those orange and red spheres in the upper-right corner.
- Bokeh Bird. This photo is different from the others considering it is blurred on both the front section and the background.
Aside from these examples given, we also have other quite exquisite bokeh photos that you can choose from.
