Bokeh is the stylistic photo effect achieved by purposefully shooting a section of an image out of focus. Usually, a particular object or plane is rendered in full focus while its background or foreground are softened and blurred. This emphasizes the parts of a photo that are in focus, and produces a dreamlike effect in the surrounding areas. Bokeh effect is most famous, however, for the translucent floating orbs of light produced when certain sources of light are shot out of focus. They instill an enchanting magical quality into photographs, but unlike a lot of other effects, they have a natural quality to them, since they are a real phenomenon. For those who cannot quite get the bubbles of light just the way they want them, Bokeh can also be added into photos during editing using PicsArt’s masks, as is the case with the photos in this gallery. The results are similar to the real thing. Even post-shoot, Bokeh effect has a way of seeming both otherworldly and natural at the same time, and it makes your pictures look absolutely fantastic.
