Unique Macro Shots by Stephane Occhipinti

Stephane Occhipinti steps out of the box with his impressive portfolio of macro shots incorporating the Bokeh effect. Bokeh is defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”. It is basically the aesthetic quality of the blur in the out-of focus area of an image. Utilized correctly, it greatly enhances the overall effect of an image, but done incorrectly and it results in a noisy, sometimes distracting background. In Stephane’s shots, his subjects stand out against a pleasingly blurred background of light. Stephane is currently based in Lyon, France.
