    I love Bokeh photography, it’s what got me into photography in the first place. My first success in that field was a broken bench. See it here: http://martinsoler.com/2010/01/25/broken-bench/

    Many people mistake bokeh as a photo with a low depth of field. But Bokeh is very specific. It is a term referring to the appearance of point of light sources in an out-of-focus area of an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.

    For an image to have bokeh it has to have small light points, like “Sunshine instead of Rain” above. However photos like “he has my eyes” and “chain” are just low depth of field shots and do not demonstrate bokeh.

    You can see bokeh effects above. The photos with the hex shaped patterns come from a lens with 6 blades in its diaphragm. The more blades, the more round the bokeh will be. Typically 9 blades will provide a nice circle.
