You have probably all seen it done without knowing the technical term for it: that "blurry background / blurry foreground thing" that can help you get some depth into your manip. The technical term - Depth of Field - describes the part of a photograph that is in focus while the camera renders everything outside the DoF as blurry. In this tutorial, I am trying to teach you how the effect comes about in classic photography (without going into too much detail - the photographers present are asked to excuse this), what you need to look out for in terms of pitfalls and how to use Photoshop tools to simulate the effect.I would love to hear your comments - all my tutorials are free, but the time it takes to write them is usually considerable, so a little feedback would be welcome, to keep my spirits up This is Part 1 of 2
