27 Incredible Bokeh Photographs

Last Updated on by

Bokeh is not so much a term in photography you'd use similarly to shallow depth of field, rather bokeh describes the quality of the out of focus area of a photograph taken with a shallow depth of field, sometimes often referred to as shooting wide open.  The Bokeh of any shot is directly attributed to the type and quality of lens, maximum aperture it can open up to and the total number of blades that make up the diaphragm.  The quality of the bokeh in any shot can help create distance and separation between the subject and the background or it can add to the overall quality of the image or, can take center stage and be the photograph.
