Capture Filter - Exclude URL Containing Certain String

Is it possible to use a capture filter to exclude traffic to a given path? The problem I'm faced with is trying to determine hits to a web server but only for certain web applications, excluding a particular one.

Ex.

I want to see traffic on google.com/blah I do not want to see traffic on google.com/bloop

I understand capture filters are more limited than display filters but I'd like to limit the size and overhead of the initial capture by only capturing traffic I want to see. The endgoal is to determine individual IPs making requests to this website, excluding traffic to a given X-Original-URL path.
