As a photographer of little children, I have come to LOVE this technique of swapping heads in Photoshop. My goal is to get a perfect picture that the parents will swoon over. Sometimes, it is difficult to get both children to look at the camera AND give a good expression at the same time so this technique is a must-know!
Here are two pictures that I want to merge. As soon as I saw this first picture, I knew it was the perfect shot of this little girl. I just adore her smile! The picture is pretty good on it’s own but I really wanted both brother and sister to be looking at the camera.
This second picture was my favorite of the little boy.
Unfortunately, there was not a picture where they both had a nice expression and were looking at the camera so a head swap is the next step. Here’s how to do it!
I hope this helps. If you have any questions or need any clarification, please ask in the comments!
