Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding candlelight and enhancing color and tone, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Here we are going to continue to work on this project which we started in the previous movie, …and what we are going to focus in on is how we can deal with this issue where this one …candle on the left isn't lit very well. …We are going to look at how we can light that candle and how we can use the candle on the …right in order to do that. …And this is a real common need in architectural photography where we have one light. Perhaps …it's a fire in a fireplace or a lamp which isn't lit up enough. …Well, we can use other exposures in order to correct that.…
Here let's go ahead and merge all of these layers to the top. …To do that, press Shift+Option+Command+E on a Mac or Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E on Windows. …Now, eventually we're going to be deleting this layer, so I am not going to name it just yet. …But what I do want to do is make a selection of this lamp. …Here we'll use the Rectangular Marquee tool and add just a little bit of a feather here, …and then go ahead and click and drag around the lamp. …
