Re: How to remove shadow

WOW! What a novel technique! I don't think I ever would have thought of that. Thanks for the GREAT write-up. I'll definitely try that sometime.

Masking *IS* selecting, though.

... of course it is ... even though, done this way it's not as long and tedious a procedure ....

BTW ... I do hope you'll have a smashing time in Rome!!!

Re: How to remove shadow

wow! Thanks for taking the time to give me such detailed instructions!! I am so excited to do this and have my pictures corrected.

I am new to using my flash and due to a horible delay in traffic I didnt have time to try it out before the ceromony. I learned my lesson.

Thanks so much!!!!

Re: How to remove shadow

Hello Flora,

I just must not be good with this. I keep trying but i am missing something between screenshot 7 and 8 that I cant get to work. When I use the brush it doesnt work. I think I messed up the step before. Any pointers? I think I messed up at the point where there was the duplicate image showing.

Thanks!
Michelle

Re: How to remove shadow

Hi there

I just made some quick mask selections of the shadows... Then with two color samples to compare the good and shadow I used curves to match.

Then a little clone tool to clean up.

I did use a few luminosity masks to adjust contrast from background to foreground.

I at first removed the back wall shadow but thought it looked more natural with just reducing it.
