    Hey Guys,

    I have seen the OOB contest and the edits were outstanding. Very nice job done by all u Guys. I have never done a OOB but wanted to have my hand.

    The following is what I have started so far. PSD is attached too.

    A picture frame is not always necessary , try something new that suits the situation and subject... even don't hesitate to go for a composition in situations like this...

    Hey ck,

    Looks good so far. I agree with Evil, the photo frame is so heavily used that it's kind of old. But if your just practicing, the next thing you need to do is use the Pen Tool to to cut out (outline) everything outside the photo frame including the head, fire, and the arm. Then add a background and shadows.

    Whatever you decide to do, I'd suggest you make more room around the subject, make the canvas bigger. He seems so cramped and there's no room for the OOB illusion to be really appreciated IMO.

    As Clareby has suggested, a little more room around the subject and also maybe add a little more flame too. Grab some good quality flame images from Google and use channels to make a nice selection. Would add to the dramatic effect

    Hey Chitkaran,

    The cutout looks fine but you need to remove or alter the background so that it's not blending with the cutout, especially the shirt below the frame.

    I see that you have some shadowing outside the frame, this is good. The shadows behind the right wrist and the microphone cord on the frame are great! But you don't need shadowing inside the frame at all.

    Re: Need help in OOB

    Thanks a lot Sam, really appreciate your inputs.

    Iwas trying to give it an effect that the right wrist is slightly outside the frame and hence added to shadow underneath.. Lolz... but it didnt give the intended effect U guess :(

    The same was the idea behind the head too, to make it look as if he is coming out of the frame for a Hookah (Smoke)..

    I would keep your suggestions and use them in my next practice session, which would be my New Born kid... would post it very soon...

    Thanks buddy
