Fix A Seamless Backdrop in PS or PSE

Posted on: January 2nd, 2014 1

It’s been a while since I made a video about Photoshop techniques. I did a shoot recently using a white vinyl seamless background, and it had lots of folds, creases, and even dirt. I easily fixed all of it using Photoshop, as well as some other little fixes that my client requested. The cool thing is, even though I used Photoshop CC for this video, virtually everything here can be done in Photoshop Elements 9 or above!


Lighting a Large Family with One Speedlight

Talk About Pressure!

This post is aimed at those of us who are tasked with getting a family photo in crappy light, while being asked to “hurry up we want to eat”, while trying to get a large group to semi-cooperate! In this scenario I had my camera, a Fuji X100S, and one speedlight triggered via wireless transmitter…..and the most important factor…..a white ceiling. It was the ceiling that allowed me to pull this off.
