Lens Blur and other blurring techniques can be utilized without hesitation, but as you point out, they should only be used in moderation to avoid looking artificial. Once again, Steve, I appreciate your wonderful film.

Great food for thought! I occasionally use background blurring in post production. Perhaps it’s time to go back and examine some of those photos while this topic is fresh in my mind. Thank you.

I have no qualms using Lens Blur or other blurring tools but agree with you that they must be used sparingly or it looks fake. Thanks again Steve for a great video.
