Before & After | Removing leashes from pet photos

December 05, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

When people walk into my downtown gallery and see the walls covered in pet portraits, they almost always ask me how I keep the dogs still.  Because I'm an animal lover first, and a photographer second, a pet's safety is always my top priority during a session.  About 95% of the time, dogs are leashed when I'm photographing them.  Removing the leashes in Photoshop can be time consuming work, but it's worth it to keep your dogs safe.  Here's a fun before and after so you can get a better idea!  In this case, my assistant was holding a few leashes on one side, while the owners were holding leashes on the other.  I must admit, it helped that these 4 dogs were calm and stayed in place.  That's not always the case, but I can work with the squirmy ones, too!
