* What is “BOKEH”?Are you familiar with the word “Bokeh”? It means “blur” or “haze”, which comes from the Japanese world “ボケ or boke” (Wikipedia: Bokeh). When we use the term in photography, it is referring to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced from a shot with shallow depth of field. Determining factors of bokeh are things like lens aberrations and shape of lens aperture. It’s very attractive and pleasing to blur the background and the focused subject even more.

* Tips for bokeh photography

1. Use of larger aperture works best
- You will get the best result with a lens, which can use large aperture.
2. Creating bokeh in different shapes
- Place in front of your lens a piece of black paper with the shape you want carved out of it.
3. Set your camera to aperture priority
4. Better to get closer to the subject or further away the background
