Blur or haze (of course, when they are used properly) add the amazing tone to the image. This technique that is applied to the out-of-focus areas of images is widely used in photography and known as bokeh. While creating a bokeh image the lens is defocused slightly and as a result we create the soft borderless aesthetics in it. Such images create some special impression due to their pleasant to eyes smoothness of colors. I’m sure that you have heard a lot about this effect that gives the stunning look to images and that’s why have decided to compile this beautiful collection of flower images in bokeh photography. Let’s enjoy them together!
