Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Center Spot and diffusion, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- If you're not particularly attracted to using…digital equivalence of glass filters…you can jump right to the diffusion…or center spot diffusion methods…to have additional controls.…Let's take a look at the center spot method.…What's nice here is that it diffuses the area…outside of the center.…Of course the center could be dragged to where you like it.…So you could decide what's in focus.…Notice that there are different intensity levels.…The ability to diffuse more,…as well as to add some warmth into that diffusion.…
Now, a value of five in my taste is way to high,…but something like two or one could be useful.…And if you take a look at the parameters here…you could really dial in the amount of blur as you see fit.…Additionally, the spot doesn't have to be perfectly round.…You might find it helpful to view the spot independently.…So now you could dial that in…so it's a bit more of a vertical…or a horizontal ellipse.…
Refine the radius and how much is the fall off,…as well as the transition amount.…This lets you get really specific.…
