c'mon it looks like it was taken in a studio you could have moved the lights further...or just use the modelling lights, not the flashes!
anyway, postwork blur is so much work especially if you have more pictures to deal with, and most importantly, its fake
but it's your business, i dont want to offend you
well, you neither know the setting, nor the lights, nor anything. youre right, maybe it was even possible, but it wasnt meant to. this version was created completely out of the comissioned work and the idea to blur it i just got during the post work. beside, its not much work, its a 5min thing, even less and fake, well, i dont think its fake. as a photographer you have more possibilities, not only your camera, and everything you do is part of the process.
