Lighten a wall through frizzy hair
Posted on 2006-07-24
I have a head shot of someone standing in front of a wooden wall. Their hair is very dark and the wood is dark, such that the contrast between them is poor. I'd like to be able to lighten the wall but without leaving a dark "halo" around her hair. The wall is, of course, wood tones (reddish-to-dark browns); but her hair is rather frizzy, so there's no clean edge.
I'm a mask noob. Is there any way to use a mask to increase the lightness of brown tones in the area of her hair, but without lightening her hair?
