A quick tut on how I made a graffiti tree phantom in photoshop.
Camera and photoshop (or photo-editing software)
Step 1: Step 1: Reference Photo
I took a pic of me with a white poster board below for reflecting light and a green poster board behind me for easy editing.
1: import to photo-editor.
Step 2: Step 2 :Clean Plate Reference
1:I took another reference as a clean plate background and imported in as the background plate.
Step 3: Step 3: Cropping
1:Crop the photo with the crop tool.
Step 4: Step 4: Layers
1:I unlocked the layer and proceeded to cut out my face pic with on a separate layer,then copied and pasted onto my background layer.
2: Changed the opacity around and mostly down.
Step 5: Step 5: Brushes and Merging
1: I took the smudge, sharpen, and dodge brushes to clean up the effects. Finally merging all layers and saving as a jpeg.
Hope you enjoyed my instructable. :)
