Don't confuse bokeh - the nature or quality of blur - with blur itself and how much of it there is.

Today is the day I mastered the blur! All with the help of some manual focus. Its so satisfying piecing it together. And I can think of soo many different ways that I can use this creatively it boggles my mind.

I used a battery as a reference this made it easier to see which pearls were in focus. and that is what I focused on throughout. I don't believe there is any misaligned focus so any difference in sharpness is because of me stopping down.

This was also a very good test of the sharpness of my 12 60 lens at different f stops

Fyi these are all cropped but the camera has not changed position.
