    Thank you George!
    But I really have no idea what bokeh is, have never heard of it before I joined APUG.
    This name is correct with F! Most people ask this question ;-)

    Bokeh Articles from Photo Techniques Magazine

    You can purchase back issue of Photo Techniques on bokeh (May/June 1997/Vol. 18, No. 3: What is 'Bokeh') here: http://www.phototechmag.com/back_issues2.htm scroll down to the right issue. The cost for shipping outside of the USA at $10 (on top of the $5.00 cost of the back issue) is a bit much.

    Harold Merklinger’s article, “A Technical View of Bokeh,” can be found for free here: http://www.darkroom.com/MiscDocs/bokeh.pdf . I didn’t find this article so useful as it tends to get too technical and hard to follow. The other two articles from the above issue of Photo Techniques are more interesting to me.

    George, have you lost your tiny hellenic mind? Discussions of bokeh are a form of oneupmanship. The sad part of it is that people who carry on lenses' bokeh haven't got to first principles yet.

    Yeah, I know, the hokey bokey, that's what its all about. Might even be true, but I doubt it.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I'm happy to try to help if you have specific questions.

    Thank you, senor Fernandez... I know about the back issue ordering, it's not really (financially) interesting...

    The online article is great, I can imagine how good must be the other ones (since they are better)...

    Whatever you might think of Ken Rockwell his article on bokeh may be easier to read than others.
    Sorry if the link has been posted before.

    http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/bokeh.htm

    I do understand why Folker take good pics without knowing about bokeh. There is a lot of debth of field in them. Great pics BTW (by the way)

    Thank you Soeren!
