AirbrushJohn and V12. Sorry for the delay, been on holiday!

What I did was put my camera on a tripod and took two photos (self timer)using the same settings ie apeture and shutter speed.

I opened both the images in PS. Both images need to be the same size. Pasted one into the other so I had two layers. I then added a layer mask and filled it with black.

You should now be left with one image but two layers. Then using a soft brush I painted over where I was positioned, in the layer below so I came through into the top layer. I then flattened the image and set it at a 'jaunty' angle. I was going to take 5 or 6 pics with me in various poses and use the same process. Its a lot of fun and isn't as hard as it sounds.

Have ago and let me know how you get on. If you don't understand anything let me know................................Graham :-)

Cheers Graham for the explanation. I will set some time this weekend to play around with this idea. I have some interesting ideas on how to use this technique.

I am not entirely clear on a few steps on photoshop but ill sort it out soon. I will update with pics once I have them

cheers
