Glorious Bokeh balls with my new Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

January 31, 2022

Bokeh (pronounced BOH-kay) is a Japanese concept for the blur in lights you see here — rendered from the out-of-focus parts of an image.  Depending on the physical characteristics of your lens and the settings of your camera, bokeh can taken on different shapes — like near perfectly round circles, crescent moons, octagonal rings, and oblong lemons.    All very fun.   The corner of this images shows a window, door and street sign adorned with multi-colour xmas lights in the “natural” perspective, while the main image shows the exact same scene in a more “creative” bokehlicious perspective.   My new (and very awesome) Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens helped me render these bokeh balls with the greatest of ease, but truth be told, my eyes can see this stuff appear too when I take off my Px glasses and squint.    I just love the effect, and wonder if you do too?
