What's the point of having a picture if the background is blurred out?

How can Boke or Bokeh be beautiful Were is the beaut in it?, (it's just blurred out) :rolleyes:

It's ok if you don't like it (or don't understand why others do), but there's no need to sound like a narrowminded prick.

To be quite frank, all you are doing is arguing for the sake of it. Your responses are painful to read :(

I agree. I love my photographs to be so full of in focus junk that you cant tell what the subject is. Bokeh is just as stupid as an index in a book. Who ever uses that crap anyways, really....

:rolleyes:

So, I think the answer to the OP is, yes, you are the only one that doesn't like Bokeh when used for effect.

My comment at this point is that it astonishes me how the OP can have either the arrogance, or the ignorance to think that since he believes the only good photographs have an infinite DOF, that everyone else really must feel that way too, or his astonishment at our absurd aesthetics is justified.

Oh my it's like an old record going around and around.

What's the point of having a picture if the background is blurred out? Most people want to see the subject and background in focus, at least you can see more detail of the picture then just one big blur.

so infact there is no blurred vision at all now you see everything with your eyes, so what a point of a camera lens that takes blur backgrounds? (in your words nice bokeh)

here is no way anyone can change your mind if some members like me don't like it no one can change our minds also,

If that is the attitude, there is no hope. I can see many have tried on this thread to make him understand there is beauty in much more of the world than he can see right now, but his intolerance and pure ignorance of what photography is about will not allow him to accept anything but his own very narrow mind's view. Too bad.

To the OP: it is perfectly fine for you to take lots of pictures with every extraneous detail in focus if you wish. You really should, however, open your mind to the beauty and clarity of meaning that selective DOF can create for a subject as well. Your photography, and your philosophy will both benefit.

^ That is just CanonEOS. Take a look at all debates where that member is involved and you will see a trend. Very argumentative, with little to no concessions for others' views. These types of folks usually don't stay on the board very long. :) It's all good, though, sometimes there is something to be gleaned from their arguments, it just takes alot of work to read through the lines and 'tude. ;)

What! you must be joking

You are trying to tell me boke-bokeh is beautful? :lol::lol: at least my Eyes is not out of focus like all the bokeh members here, at least I can see everything with two eyes and what did all of you do before boke-bokeh was invented? suck your thumbs!

"Invented"????? It wasn't "invented"; it is a fact of the physics of light and lenses. No one invented it. It is just a matter of choice whether or not selective DOF is something you want to use, or not.

Your attitude that, anyone who thinks it can be beautiful is stupid, is the problem. The fact you think it is a recent invention is proof of something else entirely.

The word "bokeh" is new, but not the practice of isolating subjects and blurring backgrounds.

I didn't say anyone is stupid you did, don't put words in my mouth or my text, I am just saying I don't think boke-bokeh is beautiful it just my opinion and I can see everything with two eyes were is the attitude in that?

Did I use bad language in this thread No but other members did
Did I use the words all the members here are stupid No
Did I say to any member they have a bad attitude No
Did I try to stop this Yes

What are you and timeSpeed doing continue it like old Record.

I say it again this time I make it bigger

I don't care if you like Bokeh but I don't like it IMO everyone to their own way of taking pictures just enjoy your life.

Bye

Maybe we should look at all your threads, your not a mod, and you don't make the rules who comes and goes, and I am here to stay forever, if you want to leave that ok. I am alowed to have my own opinions like all the other members here. and post my pictures. if you don't like what I have said don't keep replying.

The only opinion that you have given that is relevant to the thread, is that you prefer a deeper depth of field in your own work. That is fine, and no-one disagrees that you have a right to that opinion and how you produce your own work. Have fun :)

All the other rubbish that you have poorly presented and attempted to debate is just childish waffle. It appears to serve no other purpose than to perpetuate an argument where you fail to accept that facts of the matter and supplant them with your own! :D
