Capturing beautiful bokeh in your photos can be difficult, but with the right equipment it's easy.
Bokeh is a Japanese word used to describe the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image. It can make or break a photo, and is often what separates the pros from the amateurs.
There are a few things you'll need to create a beautiful bokeh: a DSLR camera, a fast lens (50mm or wider), and some EShine LED lights. With these tools, you can create stunning photos with gorgeous background blur.
Here's a step-by-step guide to creating beautiful bokeh:
- Set up your camera on a tripod and position your EShine wireless battery powered lights behind your subject, making sure they're out of focus.
- Set your camera to aperture priority mode and choose a low f-stop number like f/1.8 or f/2.8. This will give you a shallow depth of field, which is necessary for bokeh. The lower the aperture, the greater the amount of background blur you'll get.
- Focus on your subject, then take the photo.
- Review your photo and adjust your aperture or positioning of the EShine lights as needed.
What is bokeh used for?
Bokeh can be used for a variety of purposes, from adding a creative touch to your photos to helping you achieve a more professional look. It's often used in portrait photography to make the subject stand out from the background, and can also be used to add a dreamy or romantic effect.
With a little practice, you'll be able to create beautiful bokeh in all your photos!
