Well, the photographer and his/her "crew" obviously blend multiple approaches for the foreground/subjects and the background, you have to learn to work with multiple image and layers!

He does great work. Just as long as you understand doing stuff like this takes time and patience. The image under Master Artist Competition - from shooting thru post - surely took many hours work, and as tony said, probably multiple people (crew).

Excellent work!
His PP starts before he trips the shutter with a great idea, a green screen, & care to make the lighting match on all the elements.

I get the studio end of it. I'm asking about the pp, the texture of the skin to take on the texture of the background, the "fantasy look" as I call it for lack of a name for that process. He's turning a real person into a cartoonish look. I've tried numerous filters, going to a gritty Joe Grimes type look. Not quite there, but almost. Thanks for the responses.

edit: I'm well versed in PS working with layers and masking. Thanks
