Step 1

Create a new document via Cmd/Ctrl + N or File > New at 3000 pixels wide and 1875 pixels height, resolution 200 Pixels/Inch.


Step 2

The first step is to create a background. I found some suitable images, but in each something is not enough, so we take the most interesting parts and will mix them together. Go to File > Place…/Place Embedded and open “pond-438546” image. Resize it with holding Shift key for proportional transformation to the size of the working field, rotate it on -0.55 degrees, and flip it horizontally (right-click in transform mode > Flip Horizontal).


Next place another one image – “warsaw-100294”. It is not necessary to increase the size of the image, just try to compare the perspectives of these images and rotate it on -0.55 degrees, flip it horizontally.


Step 3

Add a layer mask to image “pond-438546” by clicking on the “Add Layer Mask” button in the layers panel (Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All). Select the Brush tool (B) then set the brush size to 300 pixels and hardness to 0%. Paint over the center of the image like shown in the image below.


Double-click on layer mask thumbnail and choice “Mask Edge…”. In the window that appears set

    Great tutorial! I’ve done almost all manipulation tutorials online and this one is very nice. It used some different techniques I haven’t explored. On step 23, what color do we use on the dress? Mine just says “#”

      Hi, use about 10 – 25% for Dodge and Burn tools. If needed increase this value.
