Distraction Removal

Sometimes when setting up a photo it is impossible to do so without there being distractions in the background and hence the aim is to remove these in the editing process without leaving any trace they were there.

 


 

The candle holder and candle attached to the wooden pillar was very distracting but could not be removed before the shot and hence it was removed in post production, which involved careful recreation of the wood grain to match the existing wood.

The mirror was permanently attached to the wall and could not be removed so that had to be cloned out in post production. The floor lamp cable was an oversight that could and should have been taped out of sight before the shot - a very time consuming mistake as the complex herringbone flooring pattern and grain had to be recreated to match the existing flooring in post production.

The windown, curtain and radiator were very distracting and were removed by carefully cloning the wallpaper to match the pattern, light and shade on the rest of the wallpaper - particular care had be taken to create a shadow behind the model where the radiator had been to match the rest of the model's shadow. Additional carpet, and a small amount of shoe, had to be created at the bottom of the photo as the toe of the model's front foot was far too tightly cropped in the original shot out of the camera.
