50+ Stunning Examples of Bokeh Photography

Sometimes bokeh is misleadingly defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”,since it is the characteristic of the image, not the lens itself.However, 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.
