  • Match lightness and color in this composite

    Hi

    What should be changed to improve the matching between model and background especially regarding mathing lightness/contrast and color?

    I would darken her a bit so she doesn't look albinoish and add some yellow highlights to match more with the chopper

      as 0lBaldy said she would need to a be a lot darker, almost silhouetted against the sun the in background. You could also make it look like she is being lit from the side and/or front can we can still see detail on her, but I would keep it subtle. Outline highlights would be nice too.
      As far as colour grading goes, play with 'colour balance' and 'selective colour' adjustment layers to give her the right tone. Keep it subtle though, it's always best.

      You can always play around with the RGB settings in the 'levels' and 'curves' adjustment layers too.

      Hope that helps!

        Hi

        I am working on a composite with three elements, gargoyle, model and city background. How would you adjust the color matching in order to make the images blend together better?

        Thanks
