I am facinated by Bokeh. It all started with an accidental picture that focused on the foreground instead of the subject in the background at a wedding. It’s got this very painterly effect.
Wikipedia’s definition of bokeh is very interesting. I never knew it was a Japanese word. I can’t wait to play with my macro portrait lens some more this summer.
Check out this article on how to create your own boken. I have so many cool shaped paper punches that would warrant this project a try to see the different effects.
