Radial Blur and Landrollers
I caught some Dog Whisperer episodes on the National Geographic Channel and wondered what kind of skates Cesar Millan wore.
They are Landrollers. Noticed the pic at the Landroller site and tried to duplicate the effect in Paint Shop Pro using radial blur zoom and masking. Turned out pretty good. (Found the original googling.) The Landroller website added the helmet too, evidently.
Duplicate layer the original image, radial blur zoom, then added a mask and airbrushed out the areas I wanted in focus.
Airbrush settings need to be very soft so edges won't show.
Can duplicate the entire mask layers group and fiddle with layer opacity and blend modes for various lighting and contrast effects.
