Bokeh is a Japanese word for blur. It is that simple.
From there it is an interpretation for each photographer to decide on.
Everything in photography is not a set rule, it is an opinion.
You decide what you want it to be to make the photos you enjoy sharing.
(And this is my opinion! LOL)

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

MAUITN these are the links the NEELOJ provided in an early reply:

"Here is a short article from "EHow" site on how to produce a Bokeh......
www.ehow.com/how_2031866_use-bokeh-p
ho
tography-technique.html

And here is another definition of Bokeh....
www.photography.com/articles/techniq
ue
s/bokeh/

"

From the initial post, I thought bokeh was the familiar use of short depth of field typically used to blur the background and emphasize the subject. The article highlights that it is more than that: the subject itself is slightly blurred to provide a softer aesthetic.

Least ways that's how I interpret the article! Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Catherine

What is the difference between bokeh and just plain shallow depth of field?

At the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum yesterday I spent some time trying to focus on the hummingbirds and came up with a couple of shots that might represent BOKEH.

Last month I went for a walk around the block to play with the thought of focusing on an item and blurring the background. This was a result.

I'm new to the group. These are some pictures I took tonight of a toad in front of our garage door. I think they fit the challenge. I'm also new to Flickr as well.

I really enjoy this group. Not only does it allow me to practice and show off some of my pics, but I love getting all of the positive feedback. I also love to see others photos. Everyone is so talented. With that in mind here are some of my pics for this assignment.
