Playing with compositing. Subject, background, and texture put together.

We are going to retake these portraits - we stopped by an old abandoned factory to check it out. She needed a reflector and/or a small flash to the front but I liked turning her so it looks like she has a hair light. What I don't like is the phone I the back pocket. Or that my focus points weren't working properly (that has since been calibrated for a lot mula but has been driving me nuts for months!)

I quickly cut her out with the select subject option in PS. I didn't fiddle with it too much but found a good resource with PHLEARN - only it costs money so I may keep trying to figure it out on my own.

I think she looks pretty fine on black.
What a great background for this shot and your texturing is just right. Don't know that I'll ever figure out how to do a composite. Sydney's become quite a grown-up young lady. I understand the back pocket - it's hard to separate them from their phone :)
