The finger will appear in focus and the background blurred. Now concentrate on the background, the human eye ‘pulls’ focus from the foreground to the background. <ul><li>Selective focus - w hen a particular part of the frame is picked out and the rest of the frame is blurred or indistinct. </li></ul><ul><li>Pull or ‘rack’ focus - w hen the focal point changes within the frame. </li></ul>
