    Except that there's no such thing... Bokeh is not an adjective.

    First part, yes, second part, no. Bokeh does NOT mean OOF.

    "Bokeh" seems to be a trendy word to use in photography nowadays, as more and more people take up this hobby for the first time.

    My understanding of it this word is that it cannot be used as in the following examples:

    a) I took lots of BOKEH photos
    b) Must go closer so can BOKEH the background

    but ultimately it's just a word, and people shouldn't be too hung up about using it.

    Not many of us may be able to correctly define 'BOKEH', but you look at a photo with nice smooth bokeh, and one with the OOF areas rendered harshly/badly, and your eyes can spot the difference. So as long as you can appreciate good bokeh, who gives a s*** ??
    Exploring! :)
