Here we are going to look at a really common need in architectural photography, and that is …the need to composite or combine multiple exposures together where you have one exposure …for the interior, as you can see here, and then another for the exterior. …We want to have good exposure inside, but we also want to have some nice detail outside …of those windows. …Now these photographs were captured by one of my friends and fellow photographers, Erin Feinblatt. …Check out his work at erinfeinblattphotography.com. …Erin, thanks a ton for the use of these files. And these are images which were showcasing office space.…
And in order to be able to sell or to showcase this office space, we really need to fix the …exposure in the windows there. …So let's go ahead and turn on the visibility of our top layer, and then we are going to …reach for the Polygonal Lasso tool. You can find this underneath your Lasso tool here. …So choose Polygonal Lasso. …Then for our Feather, let's go ahead and add just a few pixels. Maybe just 1 pixel will do. …
