I imagine it could be like this:

- Use an editor ( photoshop, or even something simpler )
- select cumulatively all the background with different selection tools included ( "magic wand" should be the most efficient )
- delete that selection ( background become white)
- inverse the selection ( the selection now is the subject)
- fill the selection with black color
... that it's!
