Highlighting Photos — Three Ways
3. Modified-Background Highlights (third of three pages)
Highlight background portions of your photos Many times, photos don't emphasize their main feature. Objects, people, colors, and other background elements often distract from or diminish the desired emphasis. To turn obscure photos into great photographs, photo editors first focus attention on the background, modifying it to highlight main features.
With the help of Adobe Photoshop, Warren Camp modifies images in ways limited only by his imagination. With problem-background photos, for example, there are a number of options at hand; backgrounds can be diffused, blurred, colored, darkened, or lightened until the subject stands out, as shown in the following five images that Warren recently edited.

Diffused-Background Effect Move your cursor on then off this image to see how Warren diffused the background to minimize the distracting people on each side of a costumed flutist at Disney's Epcot Theme Park.
Blurred-Background Effect Move your cursor on then off this image to see how blurring only the distracting background draws your eyes directly to a signpost's Scripture reference.
Darkened-Background Effect Move your cursor on then off this image to see how darkening intrusive background subjects, along with adding a hint of diffused glow around the mimes, highlights three key individuals.
Lightened-Background Highlighting Move your cursor on then off this image to see how a lightened background with a diffused glow and blurring applied behind the young bubble blower makes her and a lone bubble stand out.
Colored-Background Highlighting Move your cursor on then off this image to see how Warren drew attention to the wedded couple by adding tone and colors to the background and accentuating the silhouette.
