I'm sure you guys have seen stunning photos all over the web and instagram that feature a flittering of tiny blurry shapes scattered around the frame turning a beautiful photo into an etherial masterpiece. Well for those that don't know, this technique is called bokeh (the word simply means blur in Japanese). I've become enamored with the possibilities that can be created with different bokeh shapes and though I'm still experimenting, here are some of my favorite aspirational bokeh photos from very talented photographers around the web.
I've also included a video at the bottom in case any of you want to experiment with bokeh!
Here is the video as promised. I've watched tons of tutorials about bokeh on youtube and this guy gives the most simplistic and to the point approach (even though he should have cleaned his house before shooting a youtube video!).
