But as I've been editing editing editing for work, I decided to stop and record one of the steps I often take in my workflow process.
This particular session was shot a a public park, and so naturally, there are a lot of people there. I actually don't mind when there are people in the background of my shots, but for this particular image it was really bothering me. But thankfully, it's easy and quick to get rid of chick in the bright distracting red coat and the dark black ominous figure looming next to her.
Here's what I what I did to the image:
And that's it!! The clone tool is awesome for small-ish areas that need to be covered up. The thing with the clone tool, though, is that because it's essentially "copying" from somewhere, you will need to have area around the object that you can copy from that will blend well. As you play with the clone tool a little more, you will get better at deciding whether it's the right tool or not for what you are trying to do. Other tools that can be used similar to the clone tool is the bandaid tool, or content-aware. (which I might cover later!)
Hope this was helpful! :)
