“Bokeh” is a Japanese word for blurry or dizzy. And its my new favorite search term for Etsy and Flickr photo finds. This photography trend is weaseling its way into my heart and I wanna share a few examples with you!
Subject Matter often includes Nighttime Lights, Rain, Birds, and Florals and many times features focus on the object closest to the lens. The most important characteristic of the Bokeh photo is the blur happening within the light in the unfocused area, it becomes a fuzzy round spot, void of definition!
The best bokeh results for me evoke a dreamy ethereal feeling, and are especially desirable when the photographer has found the right sun ray to pour into the frame. Like this one by Etsy Seller KristyBee. I just wanna live inside of a photo like this.
