One of the ways to add dimension and realism to your images is to add a depth of field effect to your images. Depth of field is where you have a part of your image that is completely in focus. Then, anything in front or behind that point in the image is slightly blurred. This tricks the eye into thinking that you are focused on a point in space, and everything else is spatially distorted to the extent where your eye perceives depth. Okay, that was a mouthful, but in plain English, your eye thinks there is depth where there really isn’t any. However, the right amount of blur has to be applied in order for the effect to be realistic. That’s where Photoshop comes in. In the video below, I show you how to use Photoshop to create a depth of field effect. With the right photo, this depth of field effect can have a lot of impact.
