  • Hey B&H viewers today we're going to talk about creating shallow depth of field with

  • Rich smooth buttery Bokeh.

  • Bokeh. It's the aesthetic quality of the blur or out-of-focus areas produced by a lens.

  • Now before you can make bokeh, you need to produce a shallow depth of field.

  • Here's some basic steps.

  • 1. Put some distance between the subject and the background.

  • The greater this distance, the greater the differentiation between what's in and out

  • of focus.

  • 2. Employ a Large Aperture.

  • Aperture often expressed in f-stops determines the depth of field in your photos.

  • The smaller the number, the larger the whole that lets light into your camera.

  • Larger apertures will give you a shallower depth of field; opening the doorway to all

  • that is bokeh-licious.

  • 3. Use the right lens.

  • Different lenses offer different aperture values.

  • To create shallow depth of field, you'll want something with largest aperture possible.

  • Also, consider your focal length.

  • Wide angle lenses can work, but longer focal lengths add compressionan element that's

  • incredibly useful in separating in focus subjects from out of focus areas.

  • 4. Sensor size. Another important consideration.

  • While shallow depth of field is possible with any size sensor, the available lenses, working

  • distance from subjects, and overall rendering are significantly affected by sensor size.

  • Typically, bigger is better.

  • 5. Background.

  • Chose a background that lends itself to being out of focus in an interesting way.

  • Lights are always fun because they take on interesting shapes.

  • You know… “not a blank white wall

  • 6. Don't forget your foreground!

  • Shoot through a doorframe, compose with flowers in the foreground.

  • Remember, shallow depth of field isn't limited to showing off an out of focus background.

  • 7. Use less distance between yourself and the subject.

  • By moving closer, you'll accentuate the details of your subject and add more nuance

  • to the foreground and background.

  • Okay bokeh time.

  • Now bokeh is an anesthetic.

  • Calling it good or bad is completely subjective.

  • But there's a few things to look out for.

  • 1. Aperture shape.

  • If you fancy harsh, choppy bokeh select a lens with fewer aperture blades.

  • The look here is blunt, crude and incredibly literal.

  • There is nothing wrong with that.

  • That might be what you're going for.

  • For a softer more organic look, consider larger aperture lenses with rounded blades.

  • This shapes the bokeh into spheres or delicate ovals.

  • And if you want the softest most nuanced bokeh out there, try an apodization lens.

  • If you'd like to know more about apodization lenses, let us know in the comments.

  • These are some of my favorite types of lenses for portraiture.

  • Essentially there's an extra element included in the optical formula for smoothing the edge

  • shape of the bokeh.

  • Did we miss something?

  • I'm sure we missed something.
