Re: Cut out My Mum!

You may think me strange but I just love the background and if I were you I would never get rid of it. It is an interesting detail in the picture, it tells a story.
No offence to previous posts, but once you replace the background with a common one.. it becomes a little bit boring..
This is just my personal point of view.

Re: Cut out My Mum!

I agree, the background does tell a story, but I'm asking for workarounds because I shot this, keeping in mind that somepople may hand me dire images to retouch with backgrounds more hideous than this and I'm going to have to cut the person out and put them on a better background. The hair has proven (to me) the most difficult aspect of this shot.

I am trying out the different techniques people have posted here and I'm very grateful for your help.

By the way please feel free to do what ever to mum, if you want to make her 20 years younger or if you want to practice your hair adding skills in difficult situations then please go ahead
