Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding blur, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- One of the things that Tiffen clearly understands…is lenses, with all of their work…with filters and modifying lenses…and changing the data coming through the lens,…they have a lot of experience.…And to this end, they do a nice job…in their digital package of adding things to lenses,…whether that be blurring,…or corrective measures.…Let's start with this image here…and take advantage of a few distortions…to the image in the lens category.…One of the things I'd like to do…is work with the image to put a little bit of blur.…
For example, if I use the overall blur filter,…you might think, well, this is just…like any other blur filter, and it really is,…but remember with the extensive ability…to add masks, you can do some pretty cool things.…For example, a simple gradient mask,…and we can create a nice transition here to our subject.…Making sure that the dog here on the street…stays in focus, while the street behind…falls out of focus.…And what I like, is that I've set…the gradient up to match the angle of the street.…
