Bokeh For Beginners

image credit

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.

The term bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke, which means 'blur' or 'haze.' In Japanese the 'h' at the end is not present - it seems to have been adopted in English speaking circles to help with the correct pronunciation. If you say boke-aay then you are pretty close.
