Using masks

In photoshop masks can be a great tool to easily show and hide parts of a layer without erasing in the actual layer. So if you make a mistake or you want to change it later you can do this without going back in your history and also deleting other actions you did.

Understanding how masks work I will just show you how to add and use them.

I will be adding a cloudy sky to this tree picture.

Combining photo’s

For this photo I combined 6 others into one. Especially in cases like this it’s always usefull to shoot several pictures from the same angle and with the same settings. It’s al shot by hand, ofcourse it would even be easyer with a tripot but that limits your own movements during the shoot.
