With Charlotte Reeves

When photographing dogs out and about in busy urban environments, it can be hard to control everything that's going on in the background - including random people walking past in brightly coloured clothing! Sometimes they can be tricky to remove using conventional content-aware methods, so when that's the case, I have a new technique you can use instead.

In this video I'll show you a super easy technique for changing the colour of the distraction, without actually having to remove the object completely. Not just limited to this exact scenario, this technique can work well across a range of applications, whenever you need to keep the pixels but improve the colour harmony of the image.

Just another handy tip to add to your pet photography editing toolbox!
