Video Transcription

Hi there, it is class project time. Basically it is practicing what we learned in the last video tutorial. I've picked an image for you, this one's by Timothy Paul Smith. It's an Unsplash image, but you can use your own, but this one here is, really good kind of, I guess example of something, it's not shot in a studio, the lighting is a lot more contrasting and natural. A really good image to practice on. 
So I want you to mask it out, and put it on to your own background. You can find a background on either Unsplash, or through Google Images. And here are the tasks, so I've built a class projects file. It's this Word doc, you can go check it out, if you can't remember what you need to do. It is in your 'Exercise Files', under 'Projects' and there it is, 'Class Projects'. If you open that up, you'll get to here. 
This is what I want you to do, open this image, make your initial selection with the Quick Selection Tool. Use that Select & Mask we learnt in the last video to fix the edges. Add it to another background that you find intervening on the background. You might leave it as is, but you might do some Drop Shadow or play around with the levels to get them to match, and then, like always, I'd love to see what you did. 
So share them on the site, or share them with me, on Instagram, I am bringyourownlaptop. Tag me in, I'd love to see what you do. So that's it, my Photoshop lovers. I will see you in the next video right after you do your homework. Go on, go do it, bye now.
