Tip of the Day – Disappearing act
Shooting in urban locations can often mean you struggle to get a clean shot without the dog’s owner in the frame. Simply by also taking a clean background image (without moving a muscle or changing any camera settings), you can quickly and easily remove the owner from the image when you are editing.
There are however a few crucial things to remember when doing this, both at the time of taking the source images, and then later when editing.
I share these with you (and a whole lot more) in RealShoots Episode 9 in the first editing tutorial. It’s 30 minutes long and covers the complete edit in both Lightroom and Photoshop.
