What is Ghosting and How to Edit in Photoshop

What is ghosting, you ask? I’m not talking about when your potential customers ghost you….but the ghosting that can happen when mixing ambient and flash exposures in photography. Sometimes movement, or blur, still shows up if the flash isn’t powerful enough to freeze movement entirely, or you drag your shutter speed (slow it waaaay down).

Kim gives you an explanation with an example photo from one of her sessions, and shows you how sometimes you can edit minor ghosting out.

(PS – you may have to expand this video to see the ghosting better!)

Great tips. This happens a lot with kids, in my experience.

Thanks for your comment. I agree – fast-moving kids and slow shutter speeds don’t mix well, unless you use flash to stop them!
