Background Gradient Problems

Hi everyone.

I'm having a problem that should be simple to solve in theory, but I'm having a heck of a time.

I just finished a beauty retouch which turned out pretty well. The most difficult thing to fix, however, is the studio background. How do I account for (fix) the banding that happens? In other words, the light fall off that happens on the background that causes those ugly tonal jumps.

I'm trying to account for hair, so replacing the background doesn't prove to be reliable or realistic. Little help?

Joel

Re: Background Gradient Problems

Ok, I solved one problem - the banding - by adding some noise and giving it a surface blur.

Now, the transitions in light to dark...how to even it out?
