Up until a few months ago I did not know the word “bokeh.”
Then Shari came by and commented on one of my photographs and said “All really nice, but especially lovely bokeh on the first one” which sent me to Google for some research.
Turns out that attractive blurriness has a name! Well what do you know?
I’ve always liked it but never really thought about it as a concept, rather I saw it as a byproduct or artifact.
Now it’s something I like to strive for in certain shots. This one I accomplished with the new 75-300mm lens at the full 300mm focal length and close range.
