Bokeh is a term used to describe an area of pleasing soft focus in a photo – usually in the background.  Depending on the photo, it may appear as a series of soft out of focus circles.  Bokeh is the result of using a wide aperture when shooting.

Many portrait photographers use an F-stop of f/1.4 to achieve a pleasing bokeh effect.
