The word bokeh irritates me to no end because it just means blur, but you hear new photographers dropping it like crazy like it's some amazing special thing. When I was in school, we just said blur. But then, in the early 2000s, someone decided we should use the Japanese term bokeh instead. Blah.Of course, don't get me wrong, I like the effect, just not the term.I'd guess the first one is maybe jelly beans and the second one is a sweater?
Hey, I love Fred's attitude. Why use a foreign word when our own will do? It's become popular because of the fact that food photos utilize it to concentrate on the dish and keep other components of the photo out of focus. Which means not only is the term but the use of the practice is being overused!
i don't know what they are but they look pretty cool!
