Ok so here is a good example of both my puppy and what his name means.
His "Stage" name is "Peakview Wigglebutt Fuzzy Blur" But we call him Bokeh.
Bokeh, for those who dont know, is a term used in Photography to describe the aesthetic quality of the blur in the portion of a photo thats out of focus. The term comes from the Japanese word boke , which means "blur" or "haze".
The example in this photo is the gravel behind his head. The size and shape of the blur is determined by several factors including:
- Focal Length
- The shape of the aperture blades
- And the size of the Aperture itself.
