Hi. This tutorial is based on using a layer mask to merge two images. Today, I will make this dinosaur appear on this beach, just into the water. Layer masks are very simple to use, and also very useful! They work on a black – white – gray system. This tutorial will explain further.
This is my favorite new feature in Photoshop CS4. This new and revolutionary Content-Aware Scaling feature is used when re-sizing images. Users can select an area of an image that you do not want to lose when resizing and Photoshop will protect it, by removing other areas first.
To focus and recompose, you first must put the subject in the center of the viewfinder where the little red dot lights up when you press the shutter to focus the image. If you press the shutter half way the camera will focus on the subject. Now you can recompose your image and take the shot.
You will find that there is still some of the background remaining with the newly added photo. To remove this, you need to use the Datat Masking Software. You can find it in the layers tool box. Select a brush and adjust the size accordingly.
When is the best time to photograph waterfalls, you ask? Well, the answer is at sunrise. It will also be fine if you happen to photograph waterfalls while it’s cloudy and the sun isn’t too strong. You will need the light to be soft and diffused.
Bear this in mind; the slower the flow of the water, the slower you ought to set your shutter speed. You can also opt for the lowest ISO setting available, and use a high f-number.
Go outside, look around at colorful things, take a 15 minute nap, go to sleep for the night and come back the next day or days later. You need to see the image from a fresh viewpoint that you can only see with some time away. There have been so many times where I have woken up the next day and looked at a black and white that I had spent so many grueling hours on and was shocked to see that it looked terrible!
