Blurry backgrounds - Bokeh

May 27, 2017

One of the most common questions I get asked is,


How do you blur the background on your pictures?


The answer is, I shoot with a low aperture - also known as a shallow Depth of Field.

This is one of the first things you learn in photography, it’s part of the Exposure Triangle.


In it’s simplest form, the lower the aperture [f stop] the more blur [Bokeh]you will achieve. The image below is a comparison using pictures straight out of the camera and shows how the aperture effects the amount of Bokeh in an image. 

 Shot with a Canon 85mm


The Canon 85mm f1.8, has 23 f stops from 1.8 up to 22. 

I tend to shoot at between f2 and f4, resulting in Bokeh like this.
