One of those Artisan lenses at 1.1.
Phone bokeh with digital zoom. Wish I had something better in hand.
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)
Porst 50mm f1.7
Older lenses have fine microcontrast and often have interesting bokeh. That gives them a so-called organic look.
I enjoy my Lensbaby Velvet 85 quite a bit....
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?
SMC Pentax - A 50 mm f1.4 at f2.8.
