Contrast Masking. Keep the Original Shadows

Contrast Masking. Keep the Original Shadows

In this video I will show you how to incorporate the original shadows of an image on a new composition using blend modes, levels and some masking. Really easy and awesomely useful especially for photographers that need to replace backgrounds and keep the original shadows.

    Excellent technique and tutorial – thx! Shadows have always given me fits, and I have often abandoned otherwise good composites for lack of skills to get the shadows right. This looks like a really nice, easy solution.
