Another Dream

Mostly Bokeh.
Mostly Bokeh.

The experts tell you not to make a picture that is all bokeh.

So you know what I did. Immediately.

Simply put, bokeh is the out of focus area in the background of a picture. It’s a Japanese word gone wild.

The key is to leave something kind of recognizable in the background. Hopefully, you can see shapes of buildings out there in all that softness.

    1. Hi. I really think it best as a background with a subject in the foreground. But, every now and then I play with it. One of these days it will make a good background for something.


  1. This photo really works! So many photographers are concerned about how sharp their lenses are, but they don’t take photos like this!


  2. Hey David. I am too. I match my Leica glass to my Sony aRs. But, that’s because I want the camera to do what I want it to do. The pictures doesn’t always have to be sharp, but I would like to make that call. OTH, I am certainly no gear head. 🙂
