Photo Art: Black Background

It is possible to blend out the background of a photo and use the photo composite functions to create stunning photo art. The following steps will give you a possible approach:

  • Click “Copy” on the Composite viewer to keep a copy of the photo for later use
  • Add a near black “Whitepoint” or black “Color Fill” to the photo
  • Apply a “Pin Light” composite effect to return colors to the object in focus
  • Select “Haze Removal” to remove small noise from the background
  • Adjust Saturation and Luminosity until you’re happy with the result

That’s it!

Tip: Try a “Cross Hatch” at the end to create an even more realistic cartoon effect!

Have fun!
