  • removing rim light from a subject

    I need to create a composite and place a person behind a model that was shot with a red rim light. Of course, to be believable, I need to remove that rim light since it wouldn't have been there if there was a person behind. So my question is : how would you remove such a rim light on the jacket, hair and skin in a believable way ? Thanks!

    The "believable" part will depend on skin tones on this model's face and also the skin tones of the person to be composited in. As for the red rim light, you can remove that by desaturating reds in a hue/saturation adjustment layer (1). If you also need to reduce the luminance of the rim light, you could use a curves adjustment layer (with a selection to protect the background luminance) (2).

        Simulating candle light
        by mcdronkz
        This shot was lit with a single strobe, but I figured it would be nicer to make it look like it was lit with a candle light.



        However, it seems a bit harder than I imagined it to be. The shadows on the faces of the parents are not that hard to figure out, but the rest is...
