How to - Creating a Blurry Background in Your Photograph

Many beginners often ask:

“How do I make the background of my photograph look blurry?”

It is actually quite easy to achieve and it can be done in three easy steps. First of all, you will need a DSLR type camera because DSLRs have large sensors and the lenses are interchangeable. You can, however, try using a compact camera, though the results will be less successful.

Step One: Set your lens’ zoom to its maximal capacity.
For example, if you are using an 18-55mm lens, then set your lens to the 55mm focal length. A more telephoto zoom lenses are better, such as a 55-250mm zoom lens. When using this lens, set your focal length to a range of 85 to 135 mm. This focal range is ideal for photographing portraits. Read the rest of this entry »

In fact, everything immediately in front of or in back of the focusing distance begins to lose sharpness — even if this is not perceived by our eyes or by the resolution of the camera.

Bokeh Photography Techniques - Beautiful Bokeh

Bokeh describes the rendition of out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh comes from the Japanese word ‘boke’, which means fuzzy. In photography, bokeh defines the quality of the blurred lights presented in a photo. We’re not referring to a badly taken photo that’s all out of focus, but rather the aesthetically pleasing background blur. Usually, this type of blur highlights the focused subject even more. Bokeh is different from sharpness. Sharpness is what happens at the point of best focus. Bokeh is what happens away from the point of best focus. Bokeh describes the appearance, or “feel,” of out-of-focus areas. Bokeh is not how far something is out-of-focus, bokeh is the character of whatever blur is there.
