Need an excellent example of background blurring, aka bokeh? Just check out this series of photos I took last Saturday morning of our high school’s drum major, Courtney.
I love how my Nikon D700’s total focus on her pulling her baton out of her uniform so brilliantly softened the musicians and dancers she was about to lead. My Nikon 300mm f/4 lens did a great job of providing that contrast.
It looks like Courtney is conducting an abstract painting!
Of course, I’m sure everything looked perfectly in focus for her as she led our wonderful band and Angels to another fine performance.
