Bokeh is easy.....
All you need to do is read CameraStuffReview's Bokeh Bible (125 pages and you're done!)
Did you ever wonder why your images were missing something? That unique and mysterious character perhaps, which famous professional portrait and wedding photographers produce in their dreamy images? Did you ever want to isolate your subject just as in spectacular images of tennis players, pictured by professional photographers at Wimbledon or Roland Garros? Or did you admire a sharp image of an impressive lion, completely isolated from a busy environment by beautiful background blur? Don't you know how to create these large light blobs in the background of cinema movies? Wonder no longer, probably your images are lacking good Bokeh.
Surely you will have heard about Bokeh, or mysterious vintage Bokeh lenses. But is there such a thing as the perfect Bokeh lens? Perhaps you're thinking: Can I improve Bokeh in my images, without having to buy an expensive camera or lens?
The answer is: yes. The Bokeh bible eBook delivers simple tips and valuable answers. By showing you as little theory as needed and as many pictures we could cram into a 125 pages eBook.
In the last 10 years I have tested an enormous wide variety of cameras and lenses for CameraStuffReview. Now and then I grab the opportunity to shoot images at exotic locations.
I don't have the talent or ambition to become a professional photographer. But I did gain a lot of experience in photography over the last 10 years. And I'd like to share that with you.
I wrote the Bokeh Bible for you. If you understand Bokeh better after reading the Bokeh Bible, I hope you'll create buttery smooth Bokeh, like never before. During the writing process, I learned a lot. Hopefully you will too. I am confident that the theory and tutorials in the Bokeh Bible will make you a better photographer.
After you've read the Bokeh Bible you'll know catadioptric, anamorphic, fresnel, feathered or soap bubble Bokeh.
How some of the Bokeh types are associated with lens aberrations.
What's so special about vintage lenses like Hugo Gorlitz Trioplan or the Petzval lens, that they have been reintroduced?
Which modern lenses produce beautiful Bokeh?
The Bokeh Bible explains it all.
Reading about photography is nice. But actually shooting gorgeous images is better! Whether you are a Bokeh novice or pro, use our easy and simple tutorials to improve your Bokeh skills.
