From the PHLEARN YouTube Channel:
Today we show you how to realistically match lighting between two photos in Photoshop! Learn how to use a Threshold Adjustment Layer in combination with a Levels Adjustment Layer to adjust the highlights and shadows and help your subject to blend in seamlessly to a new background.
If you’re just learning how to composite, make sure that any photos you blend together were taken in somewhat similar lighting conditions!
