Bokeh: Weekly Photography Challenge
Article from Digital Photography School
Earlier today we published a plain english guide to achieving nice Bokeh in your shots – so lets put the teaching into practice and make Bokeh our theme for this week’s photography challenge.
We want to see you grabbing your camera over the next day or two and setting out to take some wonderful shots with Bokeh in them (i.e. some lovely out of focus areas in your shots).
You can take Bokeh shots in portraits, macro work, still life, nature really any type of photography you like – so hopefully there’s something for everyone!

Once you’ve taken and selected your best Bokeh shot upload it to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.
If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSBOKEH to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.
