Layer Stacking

Since we’ll be pulling together three separate images, it’s important that they’re aligned to each other correctly. Doing this manually we be a challenge, but by using Photoshop’s layer stacking function (File > Scripts > Load Files Into Stack), we can get it done perfectly in a matter of seconds.

Removing Lights

One of our main goals is to remove the stripbox on the left, which is great because we have a photo where it isn’t present! By using a temporary curves adjustment layer, we can pull up our exposure and see exactly what we’re doing. Masking in the layer without the stripbox will get rid of it without the need for a clone stamp or altering the rest of the image.

You only need new gear if you can define exactly how your current gear is limiting you and how the new gear would remove the limitation. If you can’t the money would be better spent on workshops and other forms of training.
