40 Stunning Examples of Bokeh Female Portrait Photography

In photography, bokeh (pronounced /bo??ke?/) is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.”  The term comes from the Japanese word boke, which means “blur” or “haze”, or boke-aji, the “blur quality”. Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. Bokeh describes the appearance, or “feel,” of out-of-focus areas. Bokeh is not how far something is out-of-focus, bokeh is the character of whatever blur is there. Here we have an excellent collection of Bokeh Inspired Female Portrait Photography from DeviantART.

    Hi

    This is an excellent collection of superb captures. Very inspirational. I would like to add one of my own. This is a studio shot of a model with a Red Ibanez electric guitar – unique perspective and great bokeh.

    Ok. Pasting some fuzzy circles over a picture in photoshop does not qualify as bokeh. There are some lovely examples of genuine bokeh here but also quite a few rather lazy and obvious photoshopped ones. The difference between the two camps is pretty obvious!! The picture of the blonde girl, back-lit and beautully exposed (in both senses!) is exquisite.
