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

You just have to ignore people like that. They either lack social graces, or the only place they feel they can get respect is in an anonymous place like the internet by puffing their chest out in stupid arguments.

Yep, I agree. If someone doesn't want to be called childish then they shouldn't act childish. Some people just were not raised up properly. their is a fine line between debating something, and just being an ass.

Or DOF...you dof'ed the scene just right. Nice! :D

Perhaps this thread should be closed or moved. It doesn't seem to stay on topic, nor is it productive.

Bokeh is reminiscent of Da Vinci's use of Sfumato, a form of perspective that adds depth to the image, like using lines of perspective, and shadow and light. It has been around for a long while and the effects are very usefully, but not in all aspects of photography.

Understanding when and where and how much to use is an art all of its own

Although I do like the effects of a limited DoF, I also think it is grossly overused sometimes.

the beauty of today's photography is the amount of choice available to you and your mind to invent new creative ways to use it. Don't like it, don't use it. Long gone the days of having to wait minutes to take a still picture

I agree. I also think that the speed of being able to see the effeccts of your work has really added greatly to todays creativity in using not only depth of field, but all aspects of creativity.

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


Bokeh was never invented, it always been there but the term bokeh is relatively new to photographic vocabulary.

Background blur is as old as photography itself, a technique used to isolate a subject against a background, just a technique used.

The first time I heard of bokeh was on these forums, but background (and foregound) blur has been part of my photography vocabulary for many years.

All said, I very rarely heard anyone mention background blur in all the years I've been involved in photography, but rather commenting on the subject and/or lighting.
