Using a model portrait, I used photoshop to adjust the model, by using the quick fix tool I blurred out his earring hole in the ear that was originally there, I also adapted the photo to incorporate another image of a natural scene.

Here are the two original photos.


After following the steps, I managed to put the two photos together in different ways- for example, this silhouette style with the lake image forming the shape of the models head.

This is the final images, after much playing around on photoshop using the different tools and functions. I have embed several different photos to show the different textures, tones and colours I can use to create the ideal effect I’m aiming for (I have the ability to edit these screenshots through the ‘adjust colour’ tool on preview).

I managed to create this technique using the photoshop ‘True Detective’ tutorial posted below within my digipak development. My final digipak will incorporate this exact technique (the photos will be of my own actor and location).
