A Photographer’s Guide to Artistic Bokeh
Written by Nasrul Eam
The most interesting and effective photographs tend to be those with a center of interest that contrasts strongly with the background; and when that background is soft out-of-focus, we identify them as aesthetic, especially by the quality of its blur.
It is the bokeh that makes the background blur and pleasing. Nevertheless, bokeh isn’t just about having expensive lenses and shooting wide open or picking a background with small light sources far away, it is in fact about how creatively we draw attention to the main subject, keeping it sharp and at the same time making the background get blurred aesthetically and less distracting. Capturing bokeh creatively needs step-by-step guidance and practice, and this is what this guide is all about.
