combining different lit photos?

Hi,
a client wants me to combine two photos. Problem is they are differently lit.
Is there a way to change the light on the boy so its more like his mom?
or should i just leave it and tell her it cant be done?

thanks
Bart

Re: combining different lit photos?

This is doable with doge and burning - be very careful of the colors you use though, avoid pure black and white, make sure it has the same hue as the skin area you are working on, then apply a curves layer set to luminance blending mode, adjust saturation sepratley if you need too. If the boy were not lit from the front, this would be much more difficult to do.

I've applied color match to faces selections, curves adjustment, selective HSL & levels adjustments. Needs some DB, I guess.

Of course the boy's skin tones could be matched better.

The problem is the shadow is too different using one or two lights

Thanks all.

I did some D&B to bring it closer.

First I seperated the two photos and did a levels adjustment on both. Then used the photo filter to match the coloring. Fliped the boys phot and removed him from his background. Then put a black mask over both.
