Maddie Was Never Standing In That Exact Position!

When Maddie and I went to Colorado and New Mexico to check out grad schools, we took a lot of pictures. The one I took of her photographing a landscape had a very neutral, washed out background. I decided to try and overlay it with a landscape she MIGHT have been photographing.

After using the levels tool to whiten the background behind Maddie even more, I multiplied it with the sky layer. Then Maddie needed a layer mask so I could erase the scene from her body and camera.

It still needs a little work. I seem to have left a bit of a halo around Maddie’s head, and there’s a void on the edge of the photo… Looks like there might still be a little landscape on her arms and shoulder, too… Fun technique, though!
