Advice on edited background
Hi, just wanted to firstly thank those who gave me some advice on a couple I shot (not with a gun though :O) a few weeks ago. Basically I adjusted the backgorunds on a few in photoshop (just started learning it lol) and I wanted to get some feedback on it.
My personal feeling is that it is blurred enough, as it starts to look odd when I blur it more, but what do you think? Do you think it looks better blurred? Also just to say the edge detection tool is awesome!
Ive put in the original then the edited version!
I think they look good edited...
Just try if possible to 'get it that way in the first place' Either by a fast lens or positioning you subject or yourself to make for a more pleasing/less distracting background.
To do both is optimal but is not often possible. So good job with the pp. it can be a framesaver...brian
Hey thanks alot!
Yeah I agree I'll try and frame it alot better for next time so I can make the background less distracting before pp. I prefer it natural I think the pp gives it a sorta artificial looking enhanced dof imho, but I suppose Ive got no choice, Ill learn for next time
Be sure to do away with the pole under the man's nose... And then there's still the one in his neck...
I agree a good DoF will often look better than an artificially blurred one; but if done well, most people won't notice the difference. Such is the attraction to the main subject...
I'd blur it some more... it still distracts the attention and doesn't aisle main subjects enough (my taste).
Truth is a pathless land.
The dead past darkens the ever living present.
Corrections and critics are more than very welcome, desirables.
Thank you! Ahh well I suppose Ill have to learn to remove the pole aswell
