what do you mean by new layer? cause the filter can't run on empty layer, do you mean duplicating the background for example?

definitely you want to turn the shoot through translucent umbrellas to face the subject and you can take out the black one

comment Do any birth photography books exist?
I don't think you can find something like this unless the father is the photographer, i've been blessed 2 weeks ago and got a baby boy and i gotta tell you that it's extremely hard to get good photos in the first week, most of the time my son will be sleepy which is good to photograph him but to get to get a good shot i've to spend like 3 hours between crying, mom feeding, trying to get him to sleep, pose him (which will wake him up sometimes) and repeat again. you have to be patient

comment Product Photography: White object on white background producing white halo
just out of curiosity what's your point from having light with black umbrella and 2 lights with translucent umbrellas that are not shoot through? also your problem can be solved if you shoot on black background with a background light to separate the subject from the background

comment Digital Photo Paintings
there are programs that allows you to paint using vectors like illustrator, so you can paint on top of your photo even if it was low res and then blow up the size however you want and it'll retain 100% quality because it's vector based

comment What kind of technique used here to blend background with foreground?
i believe that it's not just shallow depth of field, there's no transition in focus and also as you said that the blanket is infocus in front of the baby. can you give an example on these filters you are talking about?

comment Why isn't there a Red/Cyan slider in Color Temperature sliders in photo editing software?
that's interesting, because that way they can eliminate the Red channel in curves adjustment layers for example because it's the same, you can achieve what you want from the green and blue
