Bokeh effect in photography


Bokeh is a japanese term for the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Generally, prime lenses with large aperture create excellent boken.

The above paddy filed image was taken with a Nikon 50 mm prime lense . The purpose of taking this image was to focus on close up of paddy crop by using a larger aperture (in this case F- stop of f/1.8) and blurring the background.
