This is the first live tutorial I recorded so I had no idea what I will end up with. Basically I wanted to show how to get a high contrast hard light effect in Photoshop, almost HDR looking.

If you want to replace the background of a model shot for example, how do you keep the original shadows on the new background without having the texture of the original background over them?
In this video I will show you how to incorporate the original shadows of an image on a new composition using blend modes, levels and some masking. Really easy and awesomely useful especially for photographers that need to replace backgrounds.

In this beginners tutorial I will show you the most used techniques for cutting and extracting subjects from the background using Photoshop.

Mask hair faster using the Multiply blend mode and keep all the details in the hair 😉
