    Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi everyone:

    I've got pictures in a couple of threads to show this and have got some good response - so I've started this thread where similar images can be posted.

    A few ideas on the rules might be:
    Pictures of bokeh only - no in focus image (but some might object to that)
    The objective is to see as many nuances that the design and construction of the lens can bring to the table. It's obvious to do it on this forum because M4/3 lets you use most lenses ever made.
    As these images are mostly abstract in nature, I think post processing should be allowed to go wild, with out changing the original structure of the bokeh. Severe cropping helps, so does lots of noise.

    Here are a couple to get things going.

    Keith

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Keith, You can only have "Bokeh" when there is something in the frame in focus. Fuz in their own right (very rarely) makes an image IMO.

    Like this fuzzy one (which does not do much)..



    SOM-Berthiot 25/0.95 wide open.

    (note: the "double line" bokeh is absent)

    This one (pardon the focused part) is from Type M2 Angenieux 25/0.95.



    The OOF background isn't very distracting.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    ...however, fuzz in its own right can make pretty good "wallpaper." Viewed strictly as abstract patterns, I liked Keith's examples. The contrast between sharp-edged and soft-edged elements and the different areas of color and texture give them some structure.

    However, even pure abstraction has to have a sense of intentionality to be more than momentarily interesting. It might be an intriguing challenge for somebody to start with this technique and find a way to add intellectual content to it.

    Correct. That would certainly contradict the Keith's own guidelines!

    Pure abstraction in art has yielded more than just wallpaper over the years. These works are being sold for visual content, but also their intellectual content (the viewers interpretation could have no relation to the one the artist intended)
    The intention could be color and shape juxtaposition to make an eye pleasing picture.
    This idea started with me because I started to see some weird imagary in the OOF of these lenses. So I processed them to make that clearer. For instance, Vivek's picture of the dandelion heads has been processed to make those in-focus areas clear and visible, because Vivek wants the viewer to see that first. If he processes with the idea of making the viewer see the OOF stuff first, he will get a totally different image.
    I like Jackson Pollak's stuff but I could not guess (well, maybe I could, but would likely be wrong) what his intentions were.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    OK - another comment.
    I said this is about photographing your bokeh. I was trying to be a bit funny with that. If you think about it, it precludes photographing an image in front of your bokeh (because then, you are blocking your bokeh).
    I love cameras and lenses, have an awful lot of them, But Holgas have given me as much fun as RD-1s, G-1s, or whatever.
    I'm very much with Winogrand on this - the camera/lens is the tool - just go out and do something with it - the rules of the technology are something you must deal with it. A picture can be technically perfect or non-perfect, as long it is pleasing to the photographer.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I see these "bokegraphs" (you'll never get traction in the blogosphere if your art movement doesn't have a catchy name) as an interesting new branch on the tree of art techniques whose intellectual hook is the idea of producing a photograph that doesn't depict an explicit subject. Check out the "camera toss" and "light movement" groups on Flickr to see some others that already are well-established.

    I think there's a lot of potential in the idea of selecting or constructing scenes to be photographed specifically to look interesting when they're completely defocused.

    The trick is going to be to figure out a structure for giving them intentionality: a way to make sure the viewer can tell the difference between a deliberate "fuzzograph" and what happens when you press the shutter release accidentally.

    When I used to write art criticism, I'd refer to this as "passing the vacant-lot test": If you found the thing lying in a vacant lot, would you recognize it as a valuable work o' art, or would you just think it was an interesting-looking piece of random junk?

    (Of course there were art movements, such as Dadaism, that made a practice of putting actual junk into art galleries to force viewers to confront their internal definitions of art -- but that confrontation in itself demonstrated the Dadaists' intentionality. On the other hand, I once witnessed an amusing demonstration of NON-intentionality when I attended a museum show of "industrial sculptures" that lit up, spun, moved, etc. I noticed one very intricate one, mounted on the wall, that seemed to be drawing an interested crowd; after taking a look, I didn't have the heart to tell them that it was one of the pen recorders installed throughout the museum to track the humidity level!)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    These are from the Canon FD 50/1.4
    Not such a bokeh lens as the Takumar, but interesting (depending on whether this type of bokeh is good or bad)

    I've put titles on them to try connect them to real imagery (but I really don't want to do that)

    I agree with you mostly, Ranger. But, if you look at my pink image at the beginning of this thread, the circles don't seem to be out of focus?
    That is why the lens rendering is so interesting, it varies all over the place, depending on subject, lighting and whatever.

    No, Keith. The edges of the circles are sharp.

    Keith, The edges are sharp.

    FWIW, they are out of focus highlights rather than any blurred (real) objects.

    Don't worry about it, only 2 1/2 of us have contributed images. Viveks has a sharp image in it so it counts as 1/2

    This one is interesting - it is the new Oly 17mm 2.8. There is lots of interesting stuff in there.

    Hey Ranger - do you like the way I'm giving them names?

    Hi My Friend, Keith:
    It had a lot to do with the Zeiss Opton Sonnar 50mm F1,5 lens. As you know, the lens is reputed to produce pleasing bokeh. The object recorded is a piece of colorful fabric with many circular designs. Once again, thank you for providing me with your insightful guidance! You introduced me to the fine art of "bokehgraphy"!

    There were no images I have contributed that would qualify.

    This one might (although, it isn't a "bokeh" by definition).

    I have noticed that

    Love the idea of "Bokehgraphy" - great invention! must look out for another Nikon 50mm f1.8... keep it up everyone! I don't have any photographs of nothing but bokeh... will do something later

    "bokehgraphy" seems to be a lot of fun.

    I have no pictures to share yet, but next time I'll go shooting flowers, I'll take my knife, and cut the flower away to shoot the background. I'm still in doubt whether to the cutting before or after shooting the flower.

    No need for a tripod for this kind of work, so the procedure is:
    1. Focus on the flower
    2. Put the camera down and cut the flower
    3. Put the camera back to it's original position . . . . . . oh, that may not work

    But at least you get to take home a bunch of flowers

    Hi Leica 77 - I may break down and get this lens
    How does it produce bokehgraphs from subjects that are primarily linear in nature (a bunch of twigs)

    I just did some quick research - is the Russian Jupiter 3 a copy of the Zeiss. If so I have it on my shelf and will test it (for bokeh, of course) Should look about the same (bokehgraphers don't care about sharpness )

    Come on Rafael, stop making jokes and let's see your bokehgraphs. We all know you are out there doing them

    How does it produce bokehgraphs from subjects that are primarily linear in nature (a bunch of twigs)

    Hi My Mentor and Friend Keith,
    It seems to have a lot to do with the Zeiss Opton Sonnar 50mm F1,5 lens. I also select an object that has many white dots or circles. Thanks to you, this thread is so much fun! It's great that we have Ranger 9, Brian, bondo, Rafael, and of course, Vivek; and others (Lars, JayCee, Y.B.) coming into the fantastic world of "Bokehgraphy". All the best!

    Seems that my Jupiter may be related to Leica's Zeiss - circles everywhere

    Somehow I knew that Klaus would get involved - this thread could really grow in size

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    My Pentax 6.5mm no focus lens seems quite good for bokehgraphy - but I'm holding some back.

    As a salute to the modernist movement (ask Ranger 9 about that) this one is called "Egg and Chips" :sleep006:

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Could not hold this one back.

    It's called "Wet Lands" and is done with my Pentax 6.5mm no-focus lens.

    Sorry to be flooding these in, but I'm off on a European cruise tomorrow, and my disciples have to keep this going.

    We need a micro bokehgraph (my micro nikkor 55/3.5 with extension tube arrived today, but the adapter has still to come.)

    Also need some telephoto bokehgraphs and maybe some IR and UV

    I'm thinking of doing a cruise book in which I take a bokehghraph in each major city to show people where I am (Rome, Constantinople, Athens and all that stuff.

    I got a bit excited and wrote to Panasonic about sponsoring a world symposium on bokehgraphy, but they said that we would have to get a release from our bokeh - didn't think Vivek would like that

    Hi My Mentor and Friend Keith,

    This bokehgraph produced by your Pentax 6.5mm no-focus lens is really beautiful. I also like the image produced by your Jupiter lens, with lots of pretty circles. We'll look forward to seeing bokegraphs of Rome, Constantinople, Athens, etc. Have a nice and safe journey! All the best!

    Kweide - this is not your style. You always title your pictures. But for your first Bokehgraph, you just say "one from me" Boring

    It deserves a title. Next one has to have a title. I'm really into titles after Ranger's comments earlier. Helps to confine your expressions :sleep006:
