Our latest project in my computer arts class dealt with photo compositing. We were supposed to photoshop ourselves into a blu-ray screencap of a movie. I replaced Ellen Page with myself (sorry, Ellen…I can’t keep a straight face worth a darn). The top image is the final photo manipulation, followed by the screencap, and finally my original photo (you can see the lamp in the background as my attempt to recreate the lighting in the movie).
Here are some process steps:
1.) Use Quick Mask to remove myself from the original photo
2.) Use Clone Stamp Tool to erase Ellen from the background
3.) Use Replace Color to change my shirt from blue to green
4.) Use Hue/Saturation to make myself more yellowish
5.) Apply Noise to make my texture grainy, like the movie
6.) Use combo of Rectangular Marquee Tool and Clone Stamp Tool to steal the logo off Ellen’s shirt
