If you are a member of any online forums or Facebook groups, I’m pretty sure you have heard someone say, “I like to get my settings exactly right so I don’t have to edit”. Well, I say good for them, if they are satisfied with their results then that is great. But for the other 99.99% of us, that isn’t the story.

A histogram is a graph that shows the brightness of the pixels in your image. The horizontal axis of the histogram goes from pure black on the left side, to the brightest white on the right. The vertical axis shows how many pixels are in that tone.
The easiest way to get bokeh in an image is to use a low f/ number. An aperture of f/2.8 will easily give you a bokeh. If you have a 50mm f/1.8 lens and set the aperture to f/1.8 you will have no problem getting a bokeh.
