Bokeh (pronounced “bo” as in “bone” and “keh” as in “Kenneth”) is a photography term that comes from the Japanese boke, meaning “blur” or “haze.” And in the same way that the Japanese appreciate the beauties of imperfection in their concept of wabi-sabi, the term is a positive one, referring to the pleasant, hazy quality that can be achieved with a blurred background, often dotted with many out-of-focus points of light.
The Bokeh Masters Kit allows the photographer to manipulate those blurred points of light in the background, creating a subtle, beautiful tableau of various shapes, adding just the right, magical touch to any picture. The Bokeh Kit comes with 21 discs pre-cut to transform those out-of-focus lights into everything from hearts to horses. Have an idea for a shape not included with the pre-cut discs? Cut your own into one of 8 blank discs also included. Once you’ve chosen your disc, it’s as easy as attaching the disc holder to your camera lens with a rubber band. You’re ready to start shooting.
