We suggest you to take the Adobe Photoshop Course as a prerequisite to this tutorial. Always good to get the basics down :D.

Hello there!

Today we’ll be learning how to make the image shown above.


For this first you need to take two images,

1) A image of you in a pose similar to that in the photo below behind any plain background (plain background is mandatory, this is to cut you out perfectly, similar to a green screen)

2) A photo of your DSLR or any camera like this:

WP_20150706_16_38_23_Pro (1)Now lets jump into the editing process. For this i’ve used Adobe Photoshop CC.


Step 1

Open the photo (I’ve shot it in RAW so it opens in Adobe Camera RAW) and adjust some shadows and blacks.

Now import that photo into a new document in Photoshop and crop just above the hip.

Step 6

Press Ctrl+F6, a new window Feather Selection will open up. Set the Feather Radius to 2 pixels (this refines the selection leaving behind hard edges), and delete the background.

And voilà! We are done! 

After this I played with a few setting for B&W in Adobe Lightroom hence the two images are not really identical. Go ahead and play with it once your done to achieve your desired effect.
