>>3799482>I remember when Bokeh was something you wanted to minimize.
this was back in film days, when bokeh meant you were too unskilled to properly adjust aperature and control shutter speed with a camera>For the last twenty years however it's been "The nice glitter on my pictures :^)" to the extent that people add it in post.
this shift corresponds with the rise of early digital/phone photography.
With phones and cheapo digital cameras, the sensor size is so small that there is no good depth of field bokeh effect.
So then the photos that stand out (i.e., have bokeh) suddenly look "good" and "professional"
