Bokehlicious Portraits – 10 shining bokeh examples

From pool tables to insects, the limits of bokeh are endless. One of delightful uses of the style can be best seen in portraits/self-portraits.

Bokeh portraits pull the focus onto the subject, while also filling in the negative space with a visual feast of colour and light. Check out these great examples of bokeh photographers that have the style down pat.

Introducing Bokehlicious

A bokeh of hearts

A bokeh of hearts

Oh sweet, sweet and delicious bokeh.

If you’re looking at the above photograph and wondering how on earth it was created, maybe stick around. Is it hard to do? No. Yes, I’m serious, it’s not that hard! What do I need, I hear you ask?

  • A single reflex camera (SLR). Of course, as this is an experimental technique, using digital may save you lots of money processing!
  • A lens with a large aperture (either 1.4 or 1.8). This will allow you to have a shallow depth of field – rendering everything in your image beyond a certain length, blurry.

These are the fundamental basics for bokeh. Creating images, like the hearts image, will require a little DIY work that is both inexpensive and fun at the same time. Here is a taste of things to come on Bokehlicious:

Enjoy,

Paula
