There’s No Bokeh Like Snow Bokeh!

Today’s Shutter Sisters’ post is about bokeh. Don’t worry – I didn’t know what that meant either!

Bokeh is a Japanese word for “fuzzy” or “blurred” and refers to the aesthetically pleasing out-of-focus areas of a photo. Bokeh seems to occur often in macro flower shots or in shots where the light is gleaming. Bokeh can also be produced deliberately using a custom made filter, as demonstrated in this interesting shot.

Even though I’d never heard of the term, I do have a couple of neat bokeh shots. This is my most recent, taken during the sure-to-be-infamous blizzard of March, 2008 here in Ohio. I was literally stranded in a hotel scrapbooking that weekend (oh darn!) and took a break to visually document what was going on outside the hotel.
