Useful Photoshop Editing Skills

Clone Stamp

If you edit or retouch photos a lot, the Clone Stamp tool will be essential. The Clone Stamp tool allows you to sample pixels from one part of an image and paint those pixels onto another part of an image.

Layers

Layers are one of Photoshop’s most powerful organizational tools. By stacking layers on top of each other, Photoshop gives you the ability to not only work non-destructively but to also organize your PSD file in a way that will make sense to anyone that views it.

Blend Modes

Blend Modes in Photoshop allow you to blend your layers together in interesting ways. By setting the Blending Mode of a layer, you can tell Photoshop to apply different behaviours to the colour and tones contained within that layer.

Essential Photography Tips

Avoid camera shake

Camera shake can render a photo unusable. Increasing your ISO and opening up your aperture allows for quicker shutter speeds, reducing the chance of blurry images. However, this is not always an option if you’re trying to maintain other specific qualities of your image.

Keep both eyes open when looking through the rangefinder

This has a few advantages. When shooting portraits, your subjects will be able to ‘connect’ with you by seeing one of your eyes. Without this, many subjects can feel a little bit uneasy like you’re hiding behind the camera.

Learn to use exposure compensation

Sometimes you’ll take photographs that don’t properly expose your subject—they are way too bright, or way too dark. This can be a combination of a few things: which areas of the scene your camera measured for exposure, and how different in brightness the light and dark areas are in your scene.
