Readers said they wanted to learn to change a messy background and that is what we will tackle today. We are going to do a selection and change the background using layer masks. Photoshop has ten ways to do anything; you change your technique and approach based on your subjects and goals
Surfside Beach, Texas is one of our favorite birding locations. We made a quick trip on Tuesday and it did not disappoint.
Layers. Layers. Layers. Everyone has anxiety about using layers in Photoshop. It is a huge subject and confusing because there are so many types of layers and ways to use them. Let’s get started replacing a background.
Trying to learn Photoshop is like listening to a story where none of the characters are identified, the time frame is not specified, you have on blinders and ear muffs and to get to the end you have to first go to China. Which no one bothered to tell you until you made a big mess of things.
A quick trip to some local parks on New Year’s Eve was highly productive. Those little bitty flitty birds are quite a challenge.
It was a good year. Lots of photos of secretive Soras, shy Least Bitterns and you can never have too many images of Reddish Egrets. We had quite a few great days and I got better at birds-in-flight with all the practice.
Anahuac is the place to be this time of the year. Snow Geese and lots of raptors fill the skies plus Caracaras, American Bitterns and the year-round resident waders. We actually got up early and almost made sunrise.
