What is Bokeh?

Bokeh is often described as the aesthetically pleasing way in which a camera lens produces out-of-focus points of light. Affected by aperture shape and lens aberrations, different bokeh effects are formed.

The term bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke (暈け or ボケ), meaning haze (halo) or blurred.
