How To Turn Your Kid Into Iron Man: Photoshop Tutorial

Iron Man
So you know a little Photoshop. And you’ve got a kid who is obsessed with Iron Man. Well, here’s your chance to really impress your kid. If you follow this simple Photoshop tutorial, you can learn how to turn your kid into Iron Man in about 10 minutes. Seriously. My kid is nuts about Iron Man and when he saw what I did with a simple picture of him he was blown away. Now he wants me to make him into more Iron Man pictures, and I’m sure the rest of the Marvel cast is coming next… 

The first step is to make sure you have a good base image to work with. I mean a picture of Iron Man from Google or something that is not too small and has a clear view of Iron Man’s face. From there you’ll need to take a picture of your child’s face in roughly the same position as Iron Man’s. Try to make sure the lighting is similar too, this will make for the final image looking far more realistic. It’s not a very difficult Photoshop tutorial but does require a basic understanding of layers, layer masks, brushes and blending modes. If any of this is too far above your head, I highly recommend picking up a copy of my book, The Landscape Photographer’s Field Guide as it goes into all this stuff into detail and breaks it down in easy to understand steps.

Alright, have fun with this and let me see what you come up with!
