With Charlotte Reeves

When photographing multiple dogs, the biggest challenge is getting them all looking at the camera, with good expressions, in the same shot. I shoot like crazy whenever photographing groups, knowing that I can always do a "head swap" to create that perfect group shot in Photoshop from multiple images, if I wasn't able to get it in-camera.

In this video, I share my technique for quickly and easily performing a simple head swap using a very handy feature of Photoshop.
