In these photos, the astronauts are in sharp focus while the hardware is out of focus.
Just saying......
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

Nope. That has nothing to do with it. Everything Falcon 9 we see in the photos has been photographed many, many times before on previous launches in much greater detail.
The focus of these images was, quite literally, on the astronauts. Not on the hardware.

Yes the photo technique is known as bokeh

What surprises me is that there are no hand or arm brackets/braces to steady movements during heavy vibrations or high g movements. Trying to touch a spot on a shaking screen will not be easy.

Except for changing the channel, occupant inputs during high g movements or during vibration are largely kabuki theater. The astronauts have to sit there during those moments and let the computer fly the spacecraft.
