Most of the time blur is really frustrating for photographers, but blurring can be used to create very interesting effects like in long exposures. The ‘Zoom-Blur Effect’ as it’s sometimes called can be used to draw the viewer’s eyes into the photograph and onto the subject with the edges blurred, our eyes tend to disregard the blurred parts and look for the sharp in-focus areas.
In this short simple tutorial I’ll show you how to achieve this effect. Unfortunately if you have a compact digital camera or do not have a manual zoom lens it won’t be possible to achieve the same effect, however I’ll show you how to replicate this effect in GIMP.
