When shooting at a wide aperture you will begin to see circular shapes forming in the blurred portions of the frame. This effect is refereed to as bokeh. It can be a very useful and fun effect for portraits, but sometimes it can also be overdone. A great example of bokeh in use with portraits would be to check out my some recent photos from my friendsand .
Bokeh can also be used to create computer desktop images or as new backgrounds when using a green screen… Let’s say, a photo booth at an event?
Anyway, so while out shooting with, , , , , , ( had to depart from us before sunset) we stopped for sunset photos and I captured a few bokeh shots like this. I was going to play a a fun game but instead I’m starting out with an explanation of bokeh. In the future, be on the lookout for my new Google+ game, “Name That Bokeh”
