    Phone bokeh with digital zoom. Wish I had something better in hand.

  3. It's my favorite trick in photography - bokeh. I usually use old retro lenses to create such an effect on my pictures. Here is an interesting article on this topic. http://weedit.photos/2017/bokeh-effect-photoshop/D128 If you know some other sites, please share with me)

  5. Older lenses have fine microcontrast and often have interesting bokeh. That gives them a so-called organic look.

  7. My use of this same lens for a "bokeh" effect can be seen below.

    Just revisiting this thread, as I see it's still going strong. I must say that I haven't really considered bokeh as a photographic technique in and of itself, Isn't more a by-product? Then again, since it's become such a "thing" I guess it seems there are lenses made with bokeh in mind, eh?
