What is a digital SLR and an expensive zoom lens even slightly during recording to accomplish is also relatively easy on the PC with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements adjustment:
  • To do this, create a copy and mask the foreground subject. Then, you draw via "Filter" > "blur filter" > "lens blur" the Background soft.
