STEP BY STEP FINISH OFF IN PHOTOSHOP
use these three top tips in Photoshop or lightroom to enhance the stroboscopic effect
01 make local adjustments
Use Photoshop or Lightroom to boost the exposure and enhance contrast. The Adjustment Brush is useful for lightening bits of the pose that may not have been caught by the flash. After setting up the tool with positive Exposure and Clarity, we paint over the areas we want to enhance.
02 convert To mono
A black-and-white conversion is a great simplifier, so it’s definitely one to try out here. A stroboscopic effect can sometimes look too busy in colour. In Lightroom or Camera Raw, we can experiment with the different black-andwhite presets in the Basic Panel.
03 Try a composite
The simple background makes it easy to combine several poses. This is best done in Photoshop. We drag and drop the three images into one document and position with the Move tool, then set the blend mode to Lighten, add a layer mask and paint with black to blend them together.
