How To Create Blur On Purpose


Don’t you love a shallow depth of field? Me too, but sometimes you just can’t create what you are looking for. This photo is a perfect example of not believing everything you see! That blur? I put it there.

If you are frustrated with your phone’s or your camera’s blurry backgrounds, I’ve got answer for you! In this quick video I share my favorite app for blurring the background. It’s speedy, precise, and right now only 99 cents! And guess what? BigLens isn’t just for iPhone! Nice.
