WEEKLY INFORMAL CHALLENGE 208: "Bokeh"

Post Fri Apr 04, 2014 2:57 pm


Weekly Challenge: "Bokeh"

The challenge for this week is Bokeh. Here is the wikipedia definition: "In photography, bokeh is the blur,or the aesthetic quality of the blur,in out-of-focus areas of an image. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light". Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions."

So show us a good example of bokeh for this week. Here is an article on the subject. http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-And-Explore/Article/h0ndz86v/bokeh-for-beginners.html

A few simple rules:

1. Themes are posted on Fridays to give you the weekend to come up with a FRESH shot for the challenge to post through Monday.

2. This is about interaction, learning, being challenged and having fun so... HAVE FUN!

3. The themes are specific but interpretations are broad. Stay on theme but PLEASE feel free to think outside the box

Looks like I'm the first to post.
