The invisible man from H.G. Well's is one of my favorite books and inspired this photo manipulation.  As the model for this photo I can tell you it was very hot wearing all this stuff and standing in front of to photo lamps while getting my picture taken for a good 45 minutes. I used a cheap tripod and Samsung note as my camera not any fancy dslr and awesome photography studio equipment. Also I wanted to mention that you can rent Photoshop for 20 bucks for a month ( or safe 20 bucks and pirate the software till you have the money to buy it) or save the money to buy it legitimately, but with this new rent feature Photoshop is accessible to all If you wanted to play with it and test it out before you commit to a big purchase.

Step 1: The Setup

If you have lights use them if not use natural sun light its great. Now set up your tripod and camera to a blank wall back ground. When it comes to the clothing coats, long sleeved shirts, gloves, and a face warping are all needed. However as you can see I leave pieces exposed I did this on purpose to sell the fact that I am invisible.

Step 2: Background Removal

My suggestion for this step is to get all the background removed from the clothes then the hair and flesh. Using the pen tool you will want to go along the edge of the model  then go outwards in to the background  and come back to the original starting point and close up the pen line then right click and select "make selection" then hit okay then hit the delete button and repeat till the background is away from the model.  ( reference the pictures). Afterwards, began to remove the skin from all the areas try and keep the shapes of the clothing and bandages intact. (reference pictures).
