Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Masking in multiple light sources in an interior, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Back in the day in traditional film architectural photography, a photographer would set up each …and every light that they needed to use. Then they would make a single frame. …But now in digital capture, architectural, photographers can work a bit more quickly …by using a reduced lighting kit. …What they can do is use, say, one or two lights and then make multiple exposures using those …lights, then composite them together inside of Photoshop. …Well, that's what we are going to take a look at: how we can do that here with this photograph.…
This one was captured by my good friend Blake Marvin. …Blake, thanks again for the use of this file. …Blake has a great sense of space, and his images really convey that. …Well, here in these photographs, if we turn on the layers, you can see that, say if we …turn on the left wall, we will notice a little light source here. …All that Blake did was you shine a light on that wall. …If we turn on the next layer, we will notice a little light on the carpet in this area …
