Hello friends, it's time for another class project. So using the techniques we learned in the last video, I'd like you to use the two files that are in your 12 Visual Styles folder. Under Class Project, there's one called Double Exposure A and B. So you're going to have to mask out our man here, try to use the Select Subject. See how far you get. 

We black and white the man, we add masks to both the layers, and then it's a matter of blending the two together. You can decide on how you want to do that, whether you contain the background graphics straight into his hair, or whether a little flow out the back like I did, or whether you use the Splatter Brush, whatever works for you. You're also probably going to have to recompose this, because he's kind of pushed a little bit to the left, we probably want to move him a little a little bit to the right. And you may have to generate some more background, up to you. 

Now you can use these images, both really cool shots. I love this one, this is Poland. No idea where, but all of that moodiness of it all. I don't know, I feel like that's just part of doing double exposures. You have to use dark moody misty images. Otherwise you're not doing double exposures right. 

What I'd love you to do though is you can use your own images. You might not have a portrait lying around, but you might have another background image you could use. So combine these two, and then share with me in the assignments panel or in the comments, or tag me in social media, remember Instagram, I am bringyourownlaptop, and on Twitter I am danloveadobe. All right, have fun with this one, I will see you in the next video.
