Thread: Anyway to photoshop/edit away foreground?

  1. #1

    Default Anyway to photoshop/edit away foreground?

    I was wondering if it is possible, using whatever software, to remove the foreground fence from these pictures. I had to set my camera to manual, and focus on the road, as the AF actually focused on the fence. Don't think its even possible to zoom through the fence? The holes are very small. If anyone knows how to get rid of this distracting foreground do you mind guiding me?

    Thanks in Advance

    Retake with a longer lens.

    Only way is to painfully clone it off bit by bit. I shoot through the fence with a 500mm and there was no fence marking.

    You mean its actually possible to shoot through the fence with a 500mm lens? I thought you couldn't cause the size of the hole is so small. Also, i was at the front row. If i had shot through the fence with a 500mm lens, i would not have been able to capture the whole car?

    Thanks for the replies, so cloning is the only way huh.
    Sigh.

    I don't think he poke his lens through the fence. When you zoom is long enough, the foreground objects will be out of focus and appear almost "invisible" through the lens For example THIS

    That is partly correct only.
    U have to keep your lens very close to the fence so that you lens 'dont see' the fence.
    Its the same reason why particles and dust on lens would not show up....
