359th Show & Tell Competition: BOKEH: Using the background blur

Post Sun Apr 26, 2015 3:36 pm


Bokeh, or background blur, results from focusing a near subject with a wide open lens. This causes the background to be out of focus and can enhance or isolate the subject, in some cases giving a 3D effect to the image. Let's see how you have used background blur to enhance an image. Examples:

Complete blur, to isolate the foreground:

Strong blur, presenting blobs of light that must fit into the image composition:

Partial blur, where the background elements can be interpreted but hopefully complement and isolate the foreground:

Let's see how you can use bokeh to enhance your images!

Submissions will be closed on Sunday the 3rd of May 2015 at 15:36:26 UTC

Posting Photos for a Contest
1. Photos must be hosted on pbase.com
2. Maximum of 3 photos per contest.
3. Photos must be embedded in your post. See the following link for how to do this http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?t=18022
4. Post only medium versions of your picture using the PB-Image button
5. The host is not eligible for their own contest.
6. Any picture you've taken is eligible, regardless of date taken and camera, as long as it hasn't already won another contest.
7. You can do all the post processing you want.

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
2. If you win the Show and Tell Contest and cannot run the next one, please notify the person running the contest immediately, so they can notify the second place winner.
3. If you decide to run the next contest, please post the new contest within 24 hours.
4. When the contest ends, please post the winners within 24-48 hours. (If you keep an eye on entries during the week, you will have a good idea of your favorites by the time the contest ends, and be able to more quickly post your winners.)
5. If you know you will not be able to post a contest, judge it, and post winners, within these timeframes, please do not start one. Instead, notify the person running the contest, so they can pass it on to the second place winner.
6. Pick first, second, and third place winners. You may include up to 5 honorable mentions.
7. Include these rules in the body of your contest.
