How to Make Realistic Depth of Field in Photoshop

Composing products with different backgrounds is a common task in advertising photography, that’s why everyone should know how to do it right. I have seen many times how photographers blur the background to make a shallow depth of field (a lens blur).

However, it does not look right, and in this tutorial I’ll show you how to make a correct and natural look for an artificial lens blur on a background.

You will learn to:
• Compose the image with a different background and make a naturally looking DOF (depth of field)
