Bird is the Word

These photos were taken with an old Vivitar SLR. On this day I was experimenting with the sepia filter, and depth of field (bokeh*).

The camera did a good job at blurring the background. I really like this technique because it focuses your eyes, in these examples, on the foreground image. Bokeh removes distractions so that the subject just pops.

  • bo·keh (bōˈkā) … the out-of-focus (blurred) area of a photograph either foreground or background.
