A Collection of Some Amazing Bokeh Photos

The term bokeh comes from the Japanese term boke which means blur. It’s a characteristic of many good portrait photos where you have a nice sharp subject and then a beautiful soft background. Generally images that have good bokeh are taken with lenses that have a very large aperture like a 85mm 1.2 lens. When you open up the lens to 1.2 there is a very small depth of field and the lens produces a beautiful soft background. Bokeh can be used in many types of photography like macro photography, portraits or any other image where you want to really isolate the subject and make it stand out from the rest of the image.

I love to use bokeh in my own wedding and portrait work and wanted to get together some really cool and different examples for a little inspiration today. Check these images out, if you have some great bokeh images that you have taken leave me a note in the comments below:
