Graduated filters (or grads) are essential tools for budding landscape photographers. Neutral Density (ND) grads are the most common type of filter, and are used to balance the difference in exposure between the sky and land in a scene. Typically, the sky is brighter than the land, so without an ND grad it can be difficult to capture the detail in both.
Sometimes you can’t avoid shooting a subject in front of a background that’s not particularly interesting, and one way of making such backdrops less distracting is to shoot with a wide aperture setting, creating a shallow depth of field to blur the background and let the eye focus on your subject. Alternatively you can make a Photoshop cut-out of the person and drop them into a more interesting setting!
To do this you will need to use Photoshop’s tools to select, copy and paste a person into a more attractive location. However, creating a convincing composite can be a challenge, especially if the subject is standing against a detailed background.
We reveal two useful but unusual ways to enhance the detail in your photographs, without adding any ugly side effects in the process.
