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.
