Bokeh Loveh

The term “Bokeh” comes from the Japanese word boke (暈け or ボケ), which means "blur" or "haze".

In photography, bokeh is the blur or the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light creating these little illuminated circles, which I just love.

Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field taken with a macro (shallow focus) lens.

These are some of my favorite "bokeh" photos that i have taken throughout the past few years, all taken with a macro lens.
