What is bokeh, you ask? Bokeh (pronounced "boke-uh") is the term we use in photography to describe the out-of-focus areas or blur in a photograph. Some people, like myself, just use it specifically to describe the out-of-focus highlights.

Recently I have noticed a ton of amazing photographers using bokeh shots as textures to give photos a more dreamy or whimsical feel. For today I wanted to show you some inspirational photographs that use Bokeh textures and link to some of my favorite bokeh textures. Come back tomorrow and I will show you how to add a bokeh texture to your pictures in my next tutorial!
