Hey gang, it's Technique Tuesday again. Here is the dilemma - what do you do when you are scheduled to do a family portrait - six family members together for the first time in three years - on a Saturday morning, but Mother Nature just gifted you 3 inches of snow and freezing rain? Well, that was my challenge this past Saturday. To cancel the shoot was out of the question. So how about Designer Portraiture? That's what we did and we got a great result! The client "loved" it. Check out the tutorial below - I think you will enjoy the lesson. Read the P.S. following the video for some more related tips and links.
Thank You to Graham r for pointing out after last week's Technique Tuesday - "Winter Wonderland Any Time of the Year", that you can drag the "Extract Highlighter" off and around the canvass space reconnecting at the other side just like the "lasso" tool. Yep, works just fine - Thanks, Graham. Here is another link showing 5 background masking techniques right here.
