How Human vision Works
Seeing is one of the first few things that leads to making of a photograph. Sometimes I am on a hunt to make a photograph for a client or an assignment, in such cases I often find myself desperate to see something interesting, something that meets the criterion for the image I already have in my mind or at least something similar.
Depth of Field : Bokeh
'Bokeh' is a Japanese word that simply means blur or haze. It refers to out of focus area in a photograph. To keep the subject in focus and the background out of focus is a popular technique among photographers and it is used to isolate the subject and make the photograph more appealing.
Over millions of years of human evolution we developed various ways to perceive depth & distance as it was necessary to survive in the wild and to navigate through the jungles.
Do we see exactly what our eyes see? It seems not, as per recent researches scientists now believe that our vision is a smart vision compared to dumb vision of a camera.
