Bokeh

Le bokeh en photographie se caractérise par une profondeur de mise au point très faible pour que les détails de l’arrière-plan soient vu comme à travers une brume. Le bokeh révèle l’invisible – l’air, la nuit, la poésie. Utilisé de manière créative, il permet aux photographes d’obtenir des effets visuels photographiques incomparables.

Bokeh is a Japanese word meaning ‘blur’, and describes the pleasing or aesthetic quality of the out-of-focus blur in a photograph.
The human eye is, however, unable to perceive this unsharpness in the real world. This is the reason why pictures with bokeh always appear magical, surreal or fanciful.
To illustrate wonderful bokeh, you need a foreground that is not so far away and a background with contrasts, small elements and highlights to enable you to see very beautiful, soft and flowing light.
The well-proportioned gentleness of the light relegates what goes on in the background to secondary importance. In this way, the photographer decides on the message to be transported by the picture.

What characterises a good picture?
Bokeh-lovers would answer: a depth of focus as shallow as possible and background details as if seen through a mist. Photos with bokeh reveal the invisible – the air, the night, poetry.
The term bokeh originates from the Japanese word for ‘unsharp’ or ‘diffused’, and describes the parts of a picture that are not sharply rendered.
This unsharpness is by no means due to any form of aberration caused by the lens, it is much more the unsharpness in front of and behind the plane of focus that results from the chosen parameters – focal length, aperture and the distance from the main subject. In terms of the desired visual effect, background-bokeh is often more important than foreground-bokeh.
Bokeh pictures always have something magical, surreal or fanciful about them. The bokeh-technique is particularly suitable for the communication of moods. The intensity of bokeh varies from lens to lens. A useful rule-of-thumb says: the faster the lens, the more pronounced the bokeh.
