Holiday Bokeh

What is bokeh you say? Well, it’s pretty simple. It’s a photography thing.

Main Entry: bokeh
Part of Speech: n
Definition: a Japanese term for the subjective aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image.

Or in my terms – the blur circles. They look like orbs, and who doesn’t like orbs? Especially if they are colorful and pretty. Ohhhh!

And right now, holiday bokeh is hot. Lots of lights at Christmas which make the most beautiful orbs. This is my first year knowledgeable of my camera and all it’s manual settings. This is my first year to play with the bokeh (and the first year I know what bokeh is).

And now you know too. Win!

Oh..….how I love the bokeh.

Snowman bokeh.

Snowman disco bokeh. Heh!

Winter Bear bokeh.

Pretty Angel bokeh.

Prettier Angel bokeh.

Anna bokeh.

Salem bokeh.

I’ll use any model I can.

How fun is da bokeh?

  1. I really like bokehs. I think they’re my favorite type of pic.

    When I first read the definition of a bokeh, I thought I can do that…except I usually end up with the wrong part of the photo out of focus.


    1. LOL! I like that. Bokey is cuuuute…..

      No setting that I know of, it really comes down to what kind of lens is being used. It needs to be one with a large aperture (if that makes any sense!).


  2. When you tell people you love Bokeh, do they look at you strangely? As if they see blurry dots around your face, a type of halo? I shall have to see if I can find some Bokeh. Meanwhile, I wish you much Bokeh happiness this season!


    1. No, but bokeh around my head in a halo would be SO COOL! I wish I could turn something like that on over the holdiays and walk around spreading holiday cheer (and bokeh). :-) I hope your wish is granted! Thank-you!!
