Mr Hayes,

One of the problems is that the chess set may have been shot with a lens that can tilt and shift. This allows you to change the focal plane to fit the subject. For example, looking up at a tall building, the focal plane on a normal lens is parallel to the film. A tilting lens allows you to change the focal plane to be parallel with the building.

Old stylebox cameras also had the added ability to shift the lens enough to square the building even though you are pointing up at it.

Thanks for the compliment...it wasn't a hub cap though. It was a mirror ball in my girlfriends Moms garden. I guess I'll just have to keep playing and maybe spend some more money to get these types of shots. I don't know why but it's an effect that I seem to want to get more and more. Thanks for the pointers!

You can buy a filter with the center clear, everything around it will blur.

:homey: Hi

You could use Photoshop to manipulate the blur selectively to siut your requirements.
