Circular Background Blur


Gorgeous circular background blur is probably the number one reason I favor the 200mm lens out of all the lenses I own. What’s fun, though, is that you don’t actually need to have this lens to create this effect! In this video tutorial, I’ll show how you can create a circular background blur effect right in Photoshop.
