Canadian expat living in Kyoto. I need to learn MATLAB scripting for numerical analysis for economics. I took a C+ class a long time ago and tried to learn a little HTML, but otherwise I'm a total coding noob. In Japan we'd say 'yoroshiku onegaishimasu' - thanks in advance for taking care of me.

I think you mean the depth of field _de_creases. When something's very close to the lens it's very easy to throw out of focus – depth of field is shallow. When it's far away it's more difficult – depth of field is deep.

comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
@Andrew - yeah, it's really close, but I bet if you ask her to say "ka ki ku ke ko" you'll hear the difference between her "ke" and your "kay".

comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
That's a pretty good approximation, but the speaker is from Hong Kong. It's just like any other foreign word that's been incorporated into English in that the degree to which it's faithful to the original pronunciation depends on a number of factors, including the speaker's accent.
