Now you see it, now you don’t.

This exercise was really fun and I think that I may be doing quite a bit more projects like this one. I took this picture of the roosevelt island bridge and did this exercise called delete and remove. Something I learned in a graphics class I did a while back. This is where you select an object in the picture (it usually works better if you sect something permanent, this way your audience don’t feel like you just removed it with your hand) and in photoshop use the stamp tools and magic brush and content aware to remove it from the picture. Hers the tricky part though, you have to create an illusion as if it wasn’t there to begin with. Working with these tools in photoshop may be a little trick, you may want to start with something small and move your way up. I also retouch the picture to make the color more vibrant.

  1. I can definitely see you’ve built some solid photo retouching skills. Generally very good work! You should play with the dodge tool to try and match the white edge at the top of the buildings in your Photoshoped area. Set the tool to highlights, which will lighten the blue sky toward a white, but will not affect the dark buildings.
