Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Post work on the second of the two bridge photos, part of Architectural Photography: A Fine Art Approach.
- I want to explore a focal blend,…because I do them quite a bit, and I know we previously…did one on the staircase.…We have another one here for a shot…that really came out great, and this is from…the BP Bridge, Frank Gehry's Bridge.…And if you remember I had my GorillaPod…just set up and so close to the foreground…that I had to do focal blend throughout the image.…Now I've got everything set up here.…I've got shots and as I progress through,…you're going to see the focus get pushed back…further and further so that the last frame,…it's completely sharp in the back, and if I go…to the first frame it's sharp right on this edge.…
Now typically what I would do here is…after I did any minor raw adjustments,…is I'm going to right-click, Edit In,…Open as Layers in Photoshop.…Here we are in Photoshop with all my layers, and…just like normal here, going to go through the routine.…Select all the layers, Edit, Auto Align Layers.…Anytime we're blending we have to align them…and because we change the focal point,…this alignment is essential, and remember…
