Bokeh is a trending photography technique in which the background of a photo is blurred substantially to create a soft, compelling, deliberately out-of-focus effect. You may have seen a blurred bokeh background in night photography shots where streetlights and car headlights and taillights become artfully abstracted shapes in the background. The word “bokeh” is derived from the Japanese word “boke” which means “haze” or “blur.”
