    First time using PS and LR together. Made the mistake of importing into PS the wrong way so once i edited the BG and went to edit the rest in LR it changed my RAW to a jpg so i didnt have all the control i wanted, oh well. I selected the BG by color then set the gausian blur wayyy up to get rid of the wrinkles, for some reason it didnt do it as much around the edges of the selection (around me) so its not very good). The point of the shoot was to get a good idea of how Im gonna light some portraits im shooting this weekend.

    no prob...i wanna mess around with studio lighting but i dont really have the "know how" yet...I have a set up, it was a hand-me-down and i just havent really experimented yet with it. Im sure just like with everything else...its just practice with the "eye" for the good lighting and composition etc.

    if you used seamless instead of muslin, you wouldn't have to do a thing with the background if you wanted it smooth. it would look like that SOOC.

    Seamless is pretty cheap to generally, i strongly prefer it over muslin.

    Blurring the BG was a good idea. Nice work on the lighting too.
