  • Photo Retouch for bokeh/ film like qualities

    Hi guys,

    I know this photo was taken on a Canon and yet it looks like legit film. I was wondering how can you produce bokeh/ lens glare/ split toning like this?

    Too small to really see but start with a long lens at wide aperature. A 300mm 2.8 would do it. Split toning is easy to do in PS; I usually use a colour balance adjustment layer but there are other more, er, sophisticated ways of doing it. Works for me, though.

      Photoshop has the lens Blur filter in which you can imitate the blur from camera lenses. You can make depth maps to make objects get more blurry the farther away they are. I love to have that option on images, after they are shot. The lens Blur is very slow though. Other plugins like Bokeh, Lens Effects, Focal point are way faster, but they cost.

        Since I shoot with Nikon cameras, most of these lens references are based on my personal experiences with Nikon equipment. The general concepts however apply to any manufacturer.

        I'm looking at lenses and they say for example 18-55mm. How do I find out how much zoom this would be in x terms?! Like for example the Olympus C765 Ultra Zoom says 10x optical zoom?!

        Lens Blur Filter
        by gmitchel
        I really like the Lens Blur filter in PS CS. It does a much better job of blurring backgrounds than a simple Gaussian Blur.

        I attached two images to this message. The first is a simple JPG directly from the RAW file. It is an image of a white iris from Leu Botanical Garden in Orlando,...

        Best lens cleaning products / methods?
        by willdoak
        I used to take my Nikon film cameras to the Nikon place in New York, where someone from Japan would clean the camera and lens, check the shutter, etc., free. I was apprehensive about taking some cleaning solution to those nicely coated lenses.

        What do you recommend as good ways to clean...
