Yep! It’s Tutorial Tuesday again!

As photographers, we always work hard to get things right in camera. But sometimes that just does not happen. Fortunately we have tools to help us deal with this in post-processing.

This week I want to share a tutorial from Phlearn that helps create a realistic background blur using the Tilt-Shift feature of Adobe Photoshop. This is my favorite way of blurring the background as it really does look the most realistic of all the methods I have tried.

This is timely as well because the Photoshop and Lightroom Group is having a contest right now to add blur to increase focus on the subject of the image. Perhaps this will help you with editing your image for the contest.

Hi! I'm Kathy Newman, photographer and sole proprieter of KCNewman Photography, here in the amazing Antelope Valley. I love taking pictures. It is what I do. My camera goes with me everywhere. Beautiful sunrises, details of a flower, my lovely daughter...big or small, whatever captures my fancy, I capture it on my camera. I hope that you are inspired and blessed by the pictures as well, and want to have them in your home or business to add character and beauty to your world. I am also available for engagement, senior, newborn, family portraits, and especially weddings (I love weddings!), both in the Antelope Valley and beyond. I would love to work with you to preserve your memories. I consult closely with you to achieve exactly the photos you will cherish for a lifetime.
