clearing backgrounds

  • Posted on May 9, 2012 at 10:55 pm

on a field trip with on of my kids, as the “official”event photographer, i came home with a whole pile of pictures that needed to have all the extra people photoshopped out. there are various reasons why kids can’t be photographed but the end result is that no picture can be used that has more than one child in it, and many of those pictures can only be seen by the staff and parent(s) of that particular child. at a crowded place like the zoo, that poses a lot of interesting challenges and requires me to stretch my skills in using photoshop. now obviously i can’t post any of the photoshopped pictures, but i though i’d put up some of the interesting (to me at least) animal shots which i have done using the same techniques.
this one gets rid of all of the annoying people in the background using a stained glass effect. it would be really expensive in real life, but wouldn’t it be cool?

this one makes it lok as if there is a wall of watery glass around the enclosure.

easy cleaning

waterfall small

on one of the paths we like to walk in banff there is a whole series of little waterfalls. i have tried in the past to take pictures but there are so many branches in and around them that the photos were always awful and not worth keeping. today using our new photoshop program i managed to erase all the superfluous branches and get the fall “of my dreams”
i wish cleaning was this easy in real life

Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.
