Brief

This contest is open to subscribers (members on the Challenger, Pro and Master subscription tiers). However if you're not a paying subscriber you can still purchase entries for £2 (GBP) per image.

The term ‘Bokeh’ comes from the Japanese word for ‘blur’ or ‘haze’ and that’s (very generally) what it is. Bokeh is the soft, out-of-focus background effect you get when shooting a subject with a fast lens at a wide aperture. It’s a pleasing aesthetic quality that might be described as smooth, soft or silky. Tip: to increase the likelihood of creating visible bokeh in your photographs, increase the distance between your subject and the background.

The winners will receive a 100% discount on ANY single order from the Contrastly store!
