New Blur Effects

Today is all about the new blur effects in CS6. This is the thing I am MOST excited about since you can now have much more control over faking depth of field without purchasing a plugin. There are 3 different effects to choose from- Iris, Field, and Tilt Shift.  These are much more helpful than masking in blurs since they render much more realistically using bokeh and other options.

Creating Focal Point

Using blur can help draw the viewer’s attention to certain areas. Usually your eye goes to the sharpest things in a photo and by using the pinpoint areas you can choose exactly where you want those focal points to be.
