Bokeh is the pleasing out of focus effect caused by shooting a scene with a wide aperture. Often we think of bokeh as an effect that causes the background to be blurry. However, for today’s challenge, try to reverse that effect so that the foreground of your image has the bokeh. To do this, set your aperture wide, and focus on something in the distance. It might take a few tries, but have fun with it and don’t give up!
