For more bokeh.

You mean more out-of-focus blur.  Bokeh is quality, not quantity.

: the blurred quality or effect seen in the out-of-focus portion of a photograph taken with a narrow depth of fieldGood bokeh is smooth and pleasing, whereas bad bokeh produces a jagged and discordant effect. … The quality of bokeh is largely dependent on the construction of the lens. For this reason, lenses that provide high-quality bokeh are prized.— Harold Davis

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

In photography, bokeh (/ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə or /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay;[1] Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.[2][3][4] Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light".

"the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens."
