I’m not perfect. Sometimes when I photograph I get caught up in the moment and focus too much on the dog – and miss stuff in the background that really bothers me when I see the photo on the screen!
And sometimes when I take a photo I KNOW that there will be something in the background, a tree or a fence or something like that, that I will want to remove later. But it’s the best place possible at that location at that time.
And sometimes dirt or fur is in the wrong place.
Isn’t it nice that photoshop has several great tools to remove unwanted stuff from your photos? A BIG help for photographers like me, who is almost always outside and work with fast-moving animals! One of my favourites is the CLONE TOOL.
How does it work? See here:
Do you want to learn more? I created a free online course: A dog photographers simple guide to the clone tool in photoshop. It teaches you all you need to know to fix 99% of your photos, in a simple way. It doesn’t teach you EVERYTHING about the clone tool, that would be an enormous course, but what you need to know.
