Digital Masking: A Photography Lesson

In this project, students had to take lots of different pictures in the same area without moving the camera and then mesh them all into one photo. This is done by a process called masking. The students used Adobe Photoshop to do this. They layered all the pictures together, then put masks over them. Then they used the paintbrush tool to “erase” part of the mask so that part of the picture would show up.

There were some difficult parts, but overall, I’m happy with my work. The difficult parts were when two photos were overlapping partially and I had to make it look like they flowed seamlessly together.

In this masking project, senior Caitlin O’Kelly’s biggest challenge was, “Making it look realistic.”
