Golden rules of mon­tageS

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

There are three rules for making a con­vinc­ing mon­tage. First, you need two im­ages that have sim­i­lar light­ing so that they match up when merged. Sec­ond, the per­spec­tive needs to stay con­sis­tent, so think about the an­gle of view for each im­age and try to match the im­ages up. Third, the seams need to be un­de­tectable. This is where your Pho­to­shop mask­ing skills come into play. Use se­lec­tion tools to iso­late ar­eas then add layer masks for pre­cise con­trol over what’s re­vealed or hid­den on each layer (see step 03 and 05).
