bo•keh | bōl

noun Photography

the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens : a quick, visual survey of the foreground and background bokeh of a variety of lenses.

ORIGIN from Japanese.







This makes me think of delicious peach ring gummy candies.

Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous, Gorgeous image! This is beautiful. It was killing me because I could not figure out how to create the Bokeh effect on my camera, but last night I FINALLY got it and it is so amazing.

Do you happen to live in California? This picture oozes it :nod:

I live in Las Vegas right now :) I'm from Hong Kong!

This photo was taken in California though. It must be the sunset and the palm trees :giggle:

Glad you figured out how to play with bokeh. It's fun!

I take a photography class at my middle school. Today, my friend brought in a group of photographs of candles and wine bottles, and one of them was like this: out of focus, with a lot of bright bokeh. Our teacher told her that her photographs weren't good enough to work with, and that she would have to shoot them again. I told him that I liked the one that was all out of focus, and he said this:
"You know, every year I get students that like pictures where everything's out of focus. But a photograph is never good unless it's sharp and in focus."
That immediately brought to mind your photo right here, which I found when it received a Daily Deviation a few days ago, picked out among so many others by the Abstract & Surreal Photography Gallery Moderator. It's a beautiful photo, and still, everything is out of focus. And it made me wonder whether my art teacher really knew a whole lot about art. I mean, I do agree that if something is unintentionally blurry, then it doesn't look nice, but sometimes it adds to the picture. Like here.

Anyway, enough of my rant, but I wanted you to know that I thought of this even outside of deviantART. I really do love it. The colors are wonderful and, of course, the blurriness is too. :love:

I never meant for this to be anything but a fun little snapshot. There were just a lot of lights going on while I was in a car, and back then I was very shutter-happy :blushes:

I guess if you have a manual setting on your point and shoot, you can turn it to that, or at least turn off auto-focusing, then you should be okay :)
