Weekly Photography Assignment: Bokeh

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 101: Bokeh

Our theme this week is Bokeh. The word Bokeh can have many definitions, in its simplest form, it is known as the out of focus areas of the image. These areas can be creamy smooth caused by using a shallow depth of field, or they can be full of light, creating stunningly vivid backgrounds. Show us what you can create using bokeh!

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Rivers. You can view all of the entries here.

Photo by Simon Scorer

This weeks winner is Simon Scorer with his picture of Gljufrafoss in Iceland, It’s a great example of how powerful rives can be. The photo shows a river flowing through a gorge is formed over thousands of years, the picture is brilliantly framed to show this off and the colder tones gives the image a rather dramatic feel. Great work Simon!
