Bokeh over Mocha or something like that {December Creativity Project}

Bokeh?
Basically it is when something is in perfect focus
and the background is blurred.

Exhibit A:
Sweet baby and Daddy with Mommy bokeh.

Nice bokeh!

Roger Owen Green said...

I know nothing about photography, though I've seen this effect. Gracias for the info.

Skeller said...

Becky - it makes total sense to me that the majority of your bokeh is composed out of people! ;-) Fun post!

April said...

Such beautiful and creative shots, Becky...you never disappoint!

Tracy P. said...

You had me at mocha! I'll get back to you about the bokeh. ;-) You have a true teacher's heart. Way to illustrate the point of what bokeh is, since not everyone speaks the language.

Bokeh makes me happy. Except whenever I type the word I type "bokey". No one knows why...

Thanks for the definition of Bokeh. Now it makes sense to me.
I simply love the last shot of the Daddy's big hands and the little baby's head. A prize winner...winner, winner
chicken dinner....

I didn't realize this was a thing. I mean a thing with a name. I love it and the affect it has on me. Yay Bokeh! :)

Wanda said...

Mellisa Rock said...

This sounds like a great challenge! I have been taking my canon out more often but it seems like I am just snapping endless pictures of the same thing. I just needed a goal and you gave me one! Thank you!

Jim said...

Oh that Holly!! And all the rest Becky. Bokeh is a great technique and forces one's eye to focus on what the photographer intended.
Thanks for these and for finding time to drop by today. All the best and be well.
