Set Subject: Bokeh
Definition: Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. 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.
