Please help me with a background change
I'm not quite sure if the subject fits in this department but I would use a little help.
Yesterday I went to the studio with a acquaintance to get some pictures for something/one special. My costume didn't actually fit the background so I told the photographer to change the background from plain white to black. We didn't have much time therefore he answered that I can edit the background later in Photoshop etc.
Even after 5 years of photo editing, the background change has always been a obstacle for me. All my photo editing is done in Photofiltre Studio X which doesn't have much variety of choice. I don't have a Photoshop and buying isn't an opportunity at the moment because learning it takes a lot of time.
Editing a background for me takes about 4 hours and the result is never the same as you guys, Photoshop specialists, can create. So here we have reached the moment when I ask for your help.
Can someone please create a mystical, kind of dark but not too exaggerated general impression with a chosen picture below or teach me real quick to do something by myself?
No pressure, any help is appreciated.
PS! Sorry if I create an impression of myself being evil - most of pictures in this series are actually shot with a silly smiling emotion.
