I am not one to hide my techniques or tricks when it comes to post-editing. I used to be like that, but then I thought it was extremely selfish so I changed sometime back. Plus, with the post-editing software getting better and better I often find myself shooting a shot with a certain post-edit in mind. I am not talking about color or lighting because I think that should be done as best as possible while taking a shot. For example, the image below I took knowing that I would be able to remove Shawna from the image. I love the linear lines and where your eye takes you in the shot, which is why I put the time to remove shawna. I used Photoshop CS5’s new feature content aware deletion and the classic clone stamp. After about twenty minutes I was happy with the result.
