bokeh

Pronounced "bo-keh," it is Japanese for blur and refers to the out-of-focus background in a photo or video. Depending on camera type and distance to the object in focus, the bokeh effect is often unintentional; however, the effect is widely used by photographers and movie makers when they want to set a certain mood for the scene.
