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.
