Place your camera on a tripod; it helps when aligning layers if you have not shifted much between exposures. It is better if you could ask your subject to sit somewhere, and not shift too much between shots, ask to sit straight, take a picture, ask to place hands on the face gently, it is important that the hands are centered else it will look odd in the results. None of the above mentioned things, tripod, portrait lens, using manual mode etc are mandatory, you could easily get the shots shooting handheld in aperture priority mode, but taking the extra effort to set up and perfectly frame the shot, making sure that you use the right equipment for the job and that your subject stays still, exposures are consistent etc helps get better results. Now that you have both images as layers, change the blending mode of the top layer to overlay, do try other blending modes too, sometimes they give better results depending on the base pictures. So this is how our picture now looks once I changed the blending mode to overlay and adjusted the opacity a bit. Try adjusting the sliders or contrast settings to get the right balance between black and white areas in your picture.
Creative photographer, Web publisher, Diy fan, Avid traveler and a Nature Conservationist to the core. Basically you take two different pictures one with the subject and one of just the background. This is the setup shot for the first picture, Yasmine is lying on a table holding on to the door handle as if she is  been blown away.
In this shot Yasmine is actually standing on a chair, which we had covered with black cloth to make our job easier in post production.
Shot of the scene without the subject, as the camera was on a tripod we need not worry about  the angle of view and relative subject placement and all. Once you have the two shots which are essential, it is time to open them up in Photoshop, Put both of the images into the same document (different layers) by dragging and dropping or copying and pasting them in. Now select the top layer and then erase the stool by using an eraser tool or by using a layer mask.

I used the Panosaurus panoramic head and a Canon T1i to take all the examples in this post. In order to use Google Subscribed Links, you must create a new Google Account or sign in with an existing Google Account.
I recently came across an inspiring e-book by Evan Sharboneau that contains many examples of trick photography and special effects.
Photographer Evan Sharboneau from Oregon, USA, combines reality with fantasy to create surreal landscapes and visions, Jan 7, 2014. The pictures used in this article were shot in a garden restaurant; only light available was coming from a couple of candles and serial lights used for decoration.
Now all I did was to use the eraser tool to clean up a bit and the result is the image on top of this page.
The camera will be secured on a tripod so that the scene and the angle of view do not change.
We took one more picture of the empty scene (without the subject and the table) which is given below. The photographs in the eBook look like HDR images but they are created in quite a different way. Vizcaya Museum & Gardens features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, and a rockland hammock (native forest). Since I have also become obsessed with infrared, all of the photographs were taken with a Hoya 58mm RM-72 Infrared Filter.


Hugin was even able to stitch together standard panoramas that Photoshop CS5 failed to stitch together properly.
Just to be sure repeat the process once or twice more, some pictures just won’t align. You could also try to add some texture or using any other filters on the image for different effects. Small sections of the subject are illuminated from different directions then merged together with Photoshop. Crafting Reality: Painting with Light is an extremely thorough how-to book and I highly recommend it. If your camera records the light produced by the remote, you can take the next step – buy an IR filter. You then change the top layers blending mode to overlay (try other blending modes too, sometimes they give better results), experiment a bit with opacity settings, try changing to black and white, adding some texture etc.
Eric goes into detail about how to take the photographs and the settings to use in Photoshop. The reason why you need a small aperture is because you want both of your participants to be in sharp focus.
You also get a bonus e-book covering photography fundamentals, flashes, lenses, and Photoshop plugins as well as how to make money with photography. Expect your exposures to be extremely long because the filter blocks out almost all visible light.
