Eliminating Distractions

Even great photos can usually be improved in Photoshop. There are some things that simply can’t be controlled during a photoshoot that end up being Distractions in the final image.

This takes away from the megaphone’s shape, but by lowering using the Clone Stamp tool we can see the megaphone loud and clear!
