I was looking for some Bokeh textures recently to be used in a project and came across some beautiful free textures that I had to share. For those who don’t know what Bokeh is, it is originally "boke" and pronounced as bo as in "bore" and ke as in "Kennedy". Having originated in Japan, it loosely translates to "fuzzy" or maybe old people with cobwebs in their minds. It basically means the "out of focus" parts of a photograph. There have been a lot of discussions and controversies regarding the actual meaning of boke which was a source of much interest in the 90s. Mike Johnston, who was then the editor of Photo Techniques realized that people mispronounced it very easily and added an "h" to the word in the articles. And so "Bokeh" was born. It has definitely caught on and is a very sought after effect amongst photographers and designers who especially love the textured quality of the out of focus bits. Enjoy this lovely collection of over 155 amazing Bokeh textures, many original and many digitally altered to produce beautiful effects. Please read the artist’s terms of conditions and copyright advice before using them in your projects.
