Bokeh Photography

Bokeh is a photography style which purposefully blurs areas of an image or where the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. The origin of this terms comes from the Japanese word boke, which means blur or haze.
The English spelling bokeh was popularized in 1997 in Photo Techniques magazine, when Mike Johnston, the editor at the time, commissioned three papers on the topic for the March/April 1997 issue; he altered the spelling to suggest the correct pronunciation to English speakers, saying "it is properly pronounced with bo as in bone and ke as in Kenneth, with equal stress on either syllable"
Bokeh is naturally achieved in photography; of course this is dependent on the lens at hand. This is hard to quantify since each lens has a different focal point, magnification and aperture. Next time you’re looking for the perfect photos for printing, remember that blurring them is also an option. Bokeh photography will look amazing in canvas or any large format print.
