Doe Bokeh - best viewed in Light box...

WHAT IS BOKEH?

 

"Bokeh describes the rendition of out-of-focus points of light.

 

Bokeh is different from sharpness. Sharpness is what happens at the point of best focus. Bokeh is what happens away from the point of best focus.

 

Bokeh describes the appearance, or "feel," of out-of-focus areas. Bokeh is not how far something is out-of-focus, bokeh is the character of whatever blur is there.

 

Differing amounts of spherical aberration alter how lenses render out-of-focus points of light, and thus their bokeh.

 

The word "bokeh" comes from the Japanese word "boke" (pronounced bo-keh) which literally means fuzziness or dizziness."
