{30 day} photo fun - day 17

{Day 17 - Bokeh}

The definition of bokeh according to Wikipedia:

In photography, bokeh 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."

So, as I wrote out that definition, I realized that I totally did not get the definition the first time I read it.  Which, makes sense because I was like, "Well, it is just a really blurry background in a picture or a picture taken with the largest aperture".  But now I get that is only part of what it means.  Duh!  Dammit.

Honestly, I really have no idea how to use my camera well enough to make a great bokeh picture anyway!

Here's my {non-challenge-passing} photo!

Well, I am thinking that I sort of did it.  See the upper left where there are little circles of light congregating here and there?  That is what I think they are talking about when they say "the way the lens renders out of focus points of light".  What do you think?

  1. Maybe we could get a better definition? But 1. This is a great photo 2. I really love how blurry the background is (can we do 1 like this for mad dies photo session?) 3. I think you totally captured a bokeh pic, honest
