Lupin with Photoshop Trick
This is a Photo of Lupin using a standard Photoshop Filter/Blur/Radial with the following settings. First Duplicate the main photo layer, they apply this blur to it:
When applied the Background Copy layer will look like this:
The I erase the main area of the flower so the background flower layer shows through and set the Fill of the duplicate blurred layer to 53% so it is subtle and light.
Then Edit/Free Transform to spread the Blur effect so it won’t be too uniform.
This will also show the Duplicate Blurred layer FILL setting
For those who like a little pizazz to their Photography. Simple trick to add punch! Of course, there are always those who prefer the normal shot… ;o]
