Paint­ing FALL-OFF

Photo Plus - - Canon Skills -

The lens blur fil­ter can be set to ref­er­ence a layer mask to de­ter­mine how the blur should be ap­plied to the layer. As such, if we can con­trol the mask, we can con­trol the fall-off. We need to as­sess the im­age to fig­ure out how depthof-field would nat­u­rally play across the scene. it’s all about planes of sharp­ness. Ev­ery­thing in the same plane as our fo­cus point should be sharp, and we cre­ate fall-off by grad­u­ally tran­si­tion­ing the mask from black (sharp) to white (soft) – the shades of grey in be­tween will come out as dif­fer­ent strengths of blur.
