3D and Plane Tilt in a snap - Vignetting
Tool Description
SELECTION LENSES
With DepthField photographers can create realistic focus. It is easy to adjust the focal point in different manner :
- Through a Virtual Lens, you can easily define the area in focus and also the amount of blur and the hardness of the blur edge. Testing an effect is very fast and can be adjusted at any time by simply dragging control points
- The Planar mode is like a 3D tilting effect that simulates the tilt effect of a tilt-shift lens.These lets you increase or decrease the amount of blur across a plane
- The Selection mode features a soft brush to create your selection, you do not need to leave Aperture/Lightroom to have a selection. A virtual brush will let you create one in no time. Further feathering is possible. Alternatively you can import any image that will be converted as a soft mask.
VIGNETTES
You can combine those effects with vignetting. The vignette can be lighter, darker, or made of any color in combimation for creative effect. Vignettes might be added without any blurring at all.
INVERSE DEPTH OF FIELD
DepthField works also in a more subtle way. You do not blur the background but you increase the sharpness of the subject in focus.
