Greetings and welcome to my weekly update!
This week I have been spending uber time using the blur settings in photoshop to eliminate background noise from my photos. The hardest part is lassoing the part that you want to keep in focus. While I certainly need a lot more practice, you can see how using one of the blur tools draws the focus to the hat and face while blurring out the background. (Special thanks to my model for modeling the hat!)
