      Bokeh

      Hi, I am back once again, with a new thread on Bokeh. I am listing few photos of mine with good Bokeh. Wiki has a nice definition of Bokeh as below with Flickr also providing a thread.

      "
      In photography, bokeh (Japanese pronunciation: [boke]) 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." Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

      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. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights; blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.

      Thanks Praful . It was nothing new and not my original idea. Got it somewhere on net.
      Just take a black paper card. Cut it to circle shape of your lens filter's dia. cut a heart shaped hole in the centre. A very small one. You are there!

      Yep.I've been wanting to try this one out for a long time. Which lenst did you use?

      The 50mm is an ideal canidate.

      the 18-55 should be enough for this on manual Focus.

      It will do but it doesn't generate the kind of strong bokeh the 50mm does!
