Hair Masking can be a nightmare for any skilled designer. Every editor needs to build up a solid understanding of the basics in order to do a good job.
A fashion photographer has the task of clicking models in the right posture so that the image looks natural and beautiful. However, post-production is an important stage and if masking is going to take place, then the editor has his/her work cut out. Photoshop hair masking needs to be absolutely spot on so that the model doesn’t end up looking like he/she is sporting a wig. This has happened on a number of occasions, and if a good job needs to be done then make sure to pick out a good company that has a team of competent editors. That being said hair masking involves moving the main subject i.e. the model from one background to another. This can be a highly cumbersome task if the model has long hair that is left open during the shoot. Missing out on a few strands could make the entire image looking extremely tacky. Sometimes the editor might not even notice the anomaly, and the image could be sent for printing. This is a mistake that an editor needs to avoid at all costs.
