    Yes. Select and Mask using the refine edge workspace Learn how to use the dedicated Select And Mask workspace in Photoshop CC.

    Save your selection as a new layer. then open a new canvas same size as your image, fill it with the color of your choice. Select the layer you put the cut out on and paste it to the background.

    3. Click on SELECT AND MASK box (top tool bar) The select and mask workspace will open.
    4. Right side top set opacity to about 30% on overlay. Color red, > color overlay indicates selected area. Set edge detection to 2, feather 2, shift edge -.10.
    5. Top left select very top brush, make sure the "+" sign is checked on the top tool bar.
    6. Increase your brush size to a suitable working size, now just brush in the remainder of your mask.
    7. When done go back to right side toward the bottom click on INVERT
    8. Further down, on the right OUTPUT to new layer with layer mask. Click OK
    9. In layers, select the new layer with mask.
    10. Go to Filter>Blur>Surface Blur
    11. Set Radius to 42 Set threshold to 15 click ok
    12. With the same layer selected, go to Filter>Camera Raw
    13. When new workspace opens, go to top select adjustment brush (third from left) set your exposure to about -.50, shadows, -.5 and select a large brush. Brush over the remaining light areas of the background, don't worry about getting on the subject as the mask you created will prevent it from getting on the subject.
    14. When satisfied, click ok.
    15. You're done.
