October Camera Challenge.
Selective focus
with camera so close up is blurry (out of focus) and point of interest is more distant and sharp/clear.
( Focus the camera on point of interest, lock the focus, then move the camera so it is aiming on nearest object. Shot should take blurry foreground and sharp background).
( Cheats version. (for Photoshop)
1. Find a suitable photo. Duplicate it. Hide the original layer 1.
2. Go to copy layer 2 and select the point of interest with "moving ants" .
3. Copy onto a new layer 3. (This will be your sharp/clear point of interest.) Hide this layer 3.
4. Go to copy layer 2 and apply a filter, blur until the foreground is hazy.
5. Unhide the layer 3.
6. Merge layers 3 and 2.
7. Save with new name.

Scrap in your favourite style.

I used the "cheat" version since I could not figure out how to "set" the focus on either of my two "regular" cameras.

I didn't try the cheating method I just used the macro lens on my camera instead. So I hope I did it right.

I attempted to blur only the foreground. At 600x600, it all looks pretty blurred anyway :confused:o_O

What beautiful colour trees. Well done on getting the blurry foreground and the clearer tree at a distance. Great job. Thanks for taking part in the Camera Challenge for October.

Here's mine, focusing on one silly sunflower in a field with blurry windmill in foreground. Created with Kimberly Stewart's Sunflower Wishes Mini, with sunglasses from her She Sells Seashells kit Addon

Great page design. Love the subtle photo matting/ clustering and the movement in the photo of the blurry boy running away from the camera. Thanks for playing in the October Camera Challenge.
