Never take a picture when you can take two... particularly for posed shots. If there's more than one person in the frame, you can count on somebody blinking or frowning at just the wrong time. I had a small job today... some memory shots for the manager of a local store who's moving out of state... and taking double shots, along with Photoshop, saved my bacon. Here's a shot of the manager and her staff. I caught the folks in positions 4 and 5 with unhappy expressions on their faces. Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) I turned to my second shot, but didn't like the expressions on positions 2, 3, and 6. View attachment 11608 Fortunately, I could find a good expression for each position on one of the pictures, so I grafted heads from shot #1 to shot #2, and then polished up the composite. Since the shots were taken from slightly different distances, I had to use the free transform tool to resize the replacement heads. View attachment 11609 Here's another example from the same set. This is a shot of the outgoing manager and her successor. The outgoing manager's eyes were nearly closed the first take. View attachment 11610 The incoming manager didn't have a good expression in the second take. View attachment 11611 The head positions had shifted slightly and the exposure levels were significantly different. By using the free transform tool to tilt the grafted head, and the levels tool to adjust the brightness/contrast, I was able to get a reasonable match for the composite.
