I had the most wonderful shoot a couple of months ago with this adorable baby girl. I had brought a large white backdrop and didn't really know how to incorporate other backgrounds I brought, or how to effectively use the baby's home environment so ended up using the stark white in most of my images, thinking I could use some layers in Photoshop to add color and pattern...but it never looked right. I was able to add layers and change their opacity and hue but had so much trouble getting it to look good around her wispy hair and the fuzzy yarn of the blanket. Then I read Steve's post about changing the blending mode to "multiply" and when I did that the difference was incredible --- her little wispy hair reappeared, just like magic! It just reinforced to me how much I still have to learn about editing images. Thanks Steve!
