Tip of the Day – Disappearing act
If your doggy subject needs to be on-leash for safety or just to keep them in place, but you still want to include a large swathe of background, but there’s nothing to secure them to, what do you do?⠀
Use a little digital trickery of course!⠀
Knowing ahead of time that you can quickly and easily remove people and objects from the background means you can shoot with the end result in mind, saving you heaps of time in the editing process and allowing you to capture shots the owner would not have thought possible.⠀
