Lightroom free seminar: Lens Blur

In this free Zoom seminar I'll show you how to get the most out of a rather hidden Lightroom feature - lens blur. If you haven't worked with lens blur, it is a powerful tool that can help make your photo's main subject really stand out.

Take a look at the two photos above. They are both the same photo but by using lens blur I can isolate the buoys and have them jump out from the background. I made the example a bit extreme, I'd back it off a bit to eliminate all the clutter but make the background of the first photo softer so the eye goes right to the buoys.

I'll show you how to use the tool, the basic slider is pretty simple but we'll go deeper and you'll see how to change what is in focus by visualizing the depth and how you can control that.

You'll even learn how to use Lightroom's masking capabilities to isolate parts of your photo and have them in focus while something next to it is out of focus. You can't do this photo in your camera.

The session will be recorded so if you can't make the live seminar you'll be able to watch it later.
