use either :MagicWandTool: or this :LassoTool: to select the area you want to be in focus. Then press ctrl+i to invert the selection. Use the Gaussian blur at your discretion and that should give you the effect your looking for.

If your looking for something like this,


Download The custom brush plugin, then use the circle tool in :ShapeBoth: mode, then set your secondary color to slightly transparent. Draw your circle, then run gaussian blur at 5-10 px, and save it to your custom brushes folder. Now brush it on and adjust the color as you want.

I don't think you can achieve a realistic looking bokeh off-camera without software designed for that in particular, but Noise>Median... with a little playing around and Gaussian Blur might give you something that's close to the real deal.
