Masking shadows is difficult let’s face it and this is a problem that had no easy solution for me until now.

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.
