5 Examples of Bokeh Photography

Bokeh, a photography technique is Japanese in origin and refers to blur or a blurry quality, and in photography it is a very recognizable technique.

Soft focus photography and Bokeh are fundamentally different. In soft focus photography there is an intentional blurriness added to the subject while the actual edges are retained in sharp focus, but in bokeh it is only an element of the image that is intentionally blurred. Additionally, bokeh tends to emphasize certain points of light in the image as well.

To understand what Bokeh photography is all about, take a look at the following examples of bokeh photography.


In order to create an image that contains what is known as “good” bokeh, the photographer must first find a subject which is easily captured in a close up or short focal distance.


To keep the noise minimum, make sure that you use low ISO settings.


That strand of grass aside, everything is outside the field of focus.


Bokeh tends to appear in the areas of an image that remain outside the focal region. This is quite visible in this photo taken at a restaurant.


Always, keep in mind that you have a source of light, in this case shown here the source of light are these decorative lights.
