I'm trying something that's sort of a self-portrait. I know how I want it to look but I'm running into two problems. One is my timer on the camera and the focus. The other - which is the reason for my posting - is the merging of two pictures. I'm trying to figure out how to pull that off. I can pull the subject from one photo and drop it into place into the second and then do some erasing for a smoother background. BUT the focuses are off and the lighting don't look right. I'll post my attempt soon. I just realized that photobucket doesn't upload .tif files. If anyone can point me in the direction of a good tutorial, that'd be great. I can keep working on getting better focus on my camera.
