Below is a photo from a new model who wants this photo with a dark background.. I'm looking for suggestions before I spin tons of cycles in photoshop.

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure of what your looking for in a answer. Do you mean shooting the pose again or doing a fast and dirty thing in photoshop ?

Realy looking for ways to change the background of the existing photo.. Keep the model (w/some retouching), switch out the bed frame and white background with something darker.

..and yes.. this would need to be done in photoshop.

Ideas?

Is there a darker background you're going to insert into it, or you really just want to darken the existing one?

I was planning using a photoshop layer (or layers) to create a dark background like a black satin or silk backdrop.

I think that is the best way to go abot doing it. If you do it with an adjustment layer you should be able to change the background.

I would take the time to cut her out and place her on the new background. You can cut her out with selection tools, quickMask, the pen tool, or a combination of all of those tools.
