Bokeh in Paris

Bokeh is the Japanese word for blur. It is how your lens renders the points of light in out-of-focus areas of a picture.

The shape of the bokeh depends on the shape of your lens. So if you attach on your lens a piece of cardboard with a hole in it, the light will follow the pattern of the hole before hitting your lens. This is how to custom shape your bokeh.

Best results at full aperture (here f/1.8), to have the largest out-of-focus area.
