Admire your talent. Would love to know how to “blend”.
michaelstephens PRO+
Thanks you for that comment LensFun. I normally use the blending in the layers panel of Photoshop, then fine tune with opacity and masks. There are plenty of tutorials available online and I'm always willing to answer questions, just drop me a message. Wish you the best of shooting.
