Blog for Photographers - Orlando Meet n Greet
Local Florida - Orlando Meet n Greet
I would like to encourage photographers to join events like the Orlando Meet n Greet to meet models and learn from other photographers. The theme of this event was black and white and most of the images were shot hi-key.
Photo Project Idea - Shoot from Above
Get creative and try different angles. I stood on a chair to get this shoot from above.
I even re-connected with some models I have photographed in the past at the Orlando Meet n Greet. Poala and Kirsten are both fun models and very creative with posing.
Photoshop Tips: How to create a Panoramic college
To create this panoramic college of multiple images, I started with the middle image and then increased my canvas size to fit the other images. I used the move tool to drag the other images onto the main image and move into place. I used layer mask to hide some of the extra white around the girls so that they wouldn't overlap the next image. I had to transform (Ctrl+ T or mac Cmd+T) a few of the images to make them all the same size. It would have been smarter to shoot on a tripod with the same focal length to make the all images the exact same size for easier combining. After I had all the images in the right places and did a stamp visible (Ctrl+ALT +Shift+E or mac Cmd+Alt+Shift+E) to create a merged layer, but kept the other layers underneath in case I needed to go back. On the merged layer I used the cloning and patch tools to blend the edges in between the images better.
