I just tried my hands on photoshop (noob here), and have been reading some tutorials online.
Basically i tried to create more DOF for my portrait photos.
So, as per what Ive read, I opened up my photo as background, duplicate a copy, and used polygonal lasso to go around my subject. Then I select inverse and delete, so that everything except my subject is deleted.
Then I go to the background image and apply blur filter.
However I noticed that the edges of my subject and the background blur is very very obvious. Stark contrast of blur and sharp.
Is there anyway I could do to blend the edges of the sharp subject with the blur background image better?
