Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Masking together multiple exposures, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
In the next few movies we're going to take a look at how we can improve…composition by compositing or combining multiple frames together.…We'll also explore how we can use some of the techniques which we have picked up…in the previous movies about how we can extend or change the background.…Well, here you can see in the Layers panel that we have two different layers and…I want to talk a little bit about what happened here when I was capturing this portrait.…We'll this portrait here, I really like it, I like Kara's expression, the…subject there, I like the overall light.…
Yet the background needs a little bit of work.…It's not very well composed.…Yet, I have another frame, this one here, where I have good detail on this…element on the background, yet the expression, the light, it's completely off.…So what I want to do is combine these two different frames together.…So first what I'm going to do is I'm going to make a selection of the element of…this layer that I want to use.…To do that we could go ahead and use our Lasso tool.…
