We’re bonkers for Bokeh!
Welcome to another long awaited catch-up set of glittering Bokeh!
We’ve been working on this set for months and whilst doing so also noticed Bokeh is this seasons cool new look!
As we’ve been trialling them we discovered that layering them over dark contre-jour images really wakes them up and brings them back to life!
They also help to fill negative space and rebalance adding a dreamy sun-dappled, up to date feel.
We’ll show several examples of before and after, with macro flowers, beach and riverbanks, all having a natural affinity to bokeh as well as sun, candle lights and mellow golden hour summer picnics.
They also work well with glamour and celebrations such as wedding shoots.
The science bit.
Bokeh comes from a Japanese word describing the feel or nature of the out of focus areas of an image. Our bokeh’s smooth circles and hexagonal shapes are due to the spherical aberration in our cameras lens apertures and range from crisp sharp circles to artistically blurry.
Finally, just to enliven we have included hearts and stars all with a rough hand cut analogue feel!
For the best results these refracted bokeh pattern textures work best on images where there is some burred negative space, either caught in camera or added in your photo editing apps. For the backgrounds, try the smaller bokeh, for the foregrounds the bigger, mix them up, play with them, fade them and soften them until your image looks as though the brilliant bokeh was a happy accident! 😉
