On Bokeh

Filed in Stories :: November 28, 2011

I am an enthusiastic novice photographer, obsessed at the moment with close-up, macro, shallow depth of field, bokeh.

 

I wonder what it would be like to see through this kind of lens all the time, intent on whatever or whoever is in front of me, to give it or him or her my complete attention, to allow what is around or behind to fade into a pleasing blur.

Would this mean being present?

Have you ever been with one of those rare people who speaks to you as if no one else is in the room? As if she doesn’t own a watch, has nowhere more important to be?  As if he cannot imagine anything more fascinating than you and your words?

Can we learn to practice relationship bokeh?
