How To Emphasize motion by faking some blur using Adobe Photoshop tutorial.
Shooting for a blurred panning effect by moving with your subject to keep it sharp while the background goes fuzzy—isn’t easy.
It takes planning, practice, and often some cooperation from your subject.
Fortunately, motion blur, like many photographic effects, is possible to recreate with photoshop software.
In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll learn how to create blurred panning effect using Adobe Photoshop with the help of tools like Content-Aware Fill and Motion Blur filter.
Blurred Panning Effect Tutorial :
First, as always, duplicate Background Layer.
we first need to draw a selection around the object or area we want to remove or replace.
take lasso tool and make a selection outline around the person. but there’s no need to be surgically precise.
With the selection in place, go up to the Edit menu and choose the Fill command.
select Content Aware and click ok.
Photoshop can now examine the contents of the image and try to fill in the selected area with actual image detail, as if the subject we’re removing never existed!

i will use focus area tool to make selection.
Select the Focus Area Add Tool. simply click and paint over inside that missing area.

select refine edge brush and paint on area that needs further refinement.
