Bokeh in Paris

December 27, 2012

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.

A height competition between cypresses and cranes. We’re back in the woods and also in summertime.

106° wide and wild.

Spectral

At le Sacré Coeur at midnight, ghosts party out.

Shot with a Holga-like filter. The high saturation with burned whites and a bluish glow give it a spectral/dramatic atmosphere.
