"Bokeh, for those who don't know what it means, refers to the blur or more appropriately the quality of the rendition of the out of focus elements. Everybody loves a bit of bokeh, but which lens produces nice looking bokeh? Well, we will be taking a look at various lenses, but this week we will be comparing the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D and the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II - both are very affordable 50mm lenses, but what's the bokeh like?"

Which lens has better bokeh? Watch the video to find out!

Get Crazy Depth of Field with the Brenizer Method

"Do you dream of faster lenses, larger apertures, and ice cream? We do too! Too bad, brand new lenses don't drop into our laps everyday. Fortunately, photographer Ryan Brenizer has developed a way to get specular results from your thrifty fifty or a basic kit zoom lens. By stitching together multiple shots, Ryan makes impossibly shallow depths of field, possible."

This is something I'm going to have to try - it's extremely creative! Definitely not the kind of thing you'd tend to think of in terms of getting this great-looking effect. He also has a video up on Facebook that explains the process. If anyone has tried this method, please let me know how it turned out!
