photo background editingComplex_background_editing

This photo was shot indoors with low lighting and was dark and grainy as a result. To begin with the levels were adjusted to brighten the image and then the canvas was tilted to get the brickwork straight. This was essential to what came next – the figure in the background was removed and in the empty space bricks from the surrounding space were copied across. Care was taken to ensure the edits were invisible and that the edge of the subject was softened to sit believably over the new background. The grouting between the bricks was a little intrusive so this was toned back, and finally the image was run through a de-noise filter to remove the grain. The final image was presented at 5×7″ in TIFF format, ready for printing and framing.[/fusion_text]
