Learning About Bokeh
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” (source). It’s often most visible around lights in your image background, but blur actually occurs in any out-of-focus areas in your images.
