About This Class

In this class you will learn how to add motion blur to the background of an image using photoshop. This technique is great for adding depth and movement to your photographs. Adding motion blur to an image works best on action and sports type photographs, and will make your photos more dynamic!

Along with all of this, adding a motion blur to your background aids in distinguishing your subject from the background and is a really neat trick for when you suck at panning (like I do).

So stick around and create a class project of your own image. It can be someone running or, as in my case, a car zooming past on a racing track. 

Enjoy the class.
