    I had a bit of free time tonight and decided to work with an outtake from a previous shoot. The model (my wife ;)) is placed onto the background image in photoshop. The background image is part of the grungy stairs of my apartment building, seen in my previous post.

    Thanks for looking.

    Was it intentional that you have the head phones as the outermost part of her? That certainly makes for better extraction than hair.

    Great shot, b.t.w.

    Thanks everyone.

    Mike, I didn't shoot this with the intent on extracting it. I was browsing through some old shots, and having shot that texture specifically to use as a background, I just felt an image from this particular shoot would work well against it. The headphone does simplify the extraction yes, but it is possible to get around whispy hairs with layer masking.

    Beautiful job on the lighting, details, and color! Everything is just spot on. Love the background. :thumbup:

    Is that her picture on the little mp3 player as well?

    NJMAN, yes, that is another shot of her on the mp3 player, from the same session.

    Elsa, the background is a shot of mine. My apt building has a grungy metal staircase in the back that I've taken lots of shots of for textures.

    PNA, this probably took about 30-40 minutes including retouching and extracting and what not.
