Create a Realistic Depth of Field

Every person wants to capture images as good as a Photographer but most of the image tend to be simple when captured. Adobe Photoshop has updated its new features Blur Gallery where photographers/ designers can simply manipulate an image such that focus is on particular subject as a result of depth of field. We can achieve different effects via Blur Gallery tools. Lets check out with an example.

We have taken image of car as a sample. Go to “Filter > Blur Gallery > Field Blur “. A Blur tab pops up where you can adjust various blur effects. On Field Blur, click on the image to place blur field. You can add as many points as you like, here we have placed 5 Blur points. Each blur point can be controlled separately with different blur values.

Next, Mark the option “Tilt-Shift”, this relates to foreground and background blur. Drag the area for focus and remaining part of image will automatically get blur. Blur value here is set to 12.

Finally, tick “Spin Blur “. This tool blurs portion of area selected while spinning the pixel. Mostly it is used in car wheels to show spinning effect. Degree value here is set to 18.

Checkout before and after final image.
