a short word about cheating...
« on: March 02, 2016, 03:40:51 PM »
here it is, there is no such thing as cheating!

so I was out taking pictures of Emma and Calvin, and one would look and the other would blink or move or see something and look away. I got home and was a bit disappointed. I knew their parents would love the photos, but I didn't. but I had two with a good shot of each child. but could I combine them convincingly?


Calvin being cute, but Emma looking at Mom.



Calvin looking at Mom, and Emma's hair caught on her dress and sticking out, but finally Emma is smiling and looking at me.



so I took the first shot and pasted Emma's face from the other one into it. all of the settings were the sam so I didn't have to adjust the color or levels or anything, just scale and turn it until it fit and gently erase the lines at the edges.

I don't think it's cheating at all, because there's no misrpresentation involved.

Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?
