TIP 01 - Changing a background under a black veilThis is the first article of a new series consecrated to the main and most useful tips I use in my manipulations. I hope you'll find them useful.TIP 01 - Changing a background under a black veil by Legitimate-Stock
A black veil on a white background: this is a perfect exemple on how you can change very quickly and easily a white background for a dark one.
Don't try to cut out your model: it will be very tedious and quite impossible to do without lightening the part of the background behind the transparent veil. Just put your new background OVER the model, with a Multiply mode, then, on a layer mask with a large soft brush, remove the unwanted parts (on the face and on the arm).
A few seconds work for a perfect result, what else?

"In fiction and folklore, a doppelganger (or doppelga(e)nger, literally "double-goer") is a look-alike or double of a living person, sometimes portrayed as a paranormal phenomenon, and is usually seen as a harbinger of bad luck. In other traditions and stories, they recognize one's 'double-goer' as an evil twin."
