Em­pha­sise a sense of speed

Digital Photo (UK) - - PHOTOSHOP GENIUS -

This tech­nique is not only good for adding a sense of move­ment to static shots, but also for in­creas­ing it in im­ages with speedy sub­jects. To cap­ture the im­age on the left a fast shut­ter speed was needed, but this re­sulted in a scene where ev­ery­thing ap­peared sharp, nul­li­fy­ing the sense of ac­tion. By adding a zoom blur to the im­age and se­lec­tively re­mov­ing the sub­jects from it, we’ve in­creased the im­pact it has and si­mul­ta­ne­ously blocked out the dis­trac­tions in the back­ground.

With zoom blur added the sharp sub­ject in the im­age has more im­pact.
