I’m not much of a photographer, but I have to admit that I’ve always loved the effect of blurry lights and have tried to mimic the look many times before, but I never knew there was an actual term for it: Bokeh photo technique. Coined by the Japanese, it describes images that focus on one subject while everything else is out of focus.

These images are particularly popular during the Christmas holidays, considering how many lights there are compared to the rest of the year. I think I may unearth my camera and put this Bokeh photo technique to use tonight! Stats for Serendipitous Lightography Trending: Older & Warm
