If ever I figure out how apply bokeh to my photos, I swear I will do it all the time. However, right now I'm not even too sure if that's how you use the word in a sentence.
In photography, bokeh is the blur or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image. I did my very best to learn what the hell it's all about.
"Bokeh is not how far something is out-of-focus, bokeh is the character of whatever blur is there." OK, I know that is probably perfect English but it could be double Dutch for all I understand it.
The word "bokeh" comes from the Japanese word "boke" (pronounced bo-keh) which literally means fuzziness or dizziness.
YES! Dizziness is what happened to me.
Are you getting the feeling that bokeh has been frustrating for me? I followed every instruction I could find but just couldn't get the hang of it. So I'm going to inflict you with the few where I "nearly" got it ....I think.
But don't think that's the end of it! I intend to consult an expert and sooner or later I will get it.
