Hey! Thanks so much! :)
There’s no special trick really, all you have to do is to choose the right caps (like, if the background you’re gonna use is light, you need to choose a cap in which the subject is also set against a light bg; the same goes for dark backgrounds.) and then cut (using either the eraser or the pen tool).
Sometimes, if the bg is dark/light and soft enough, I don’t cut it - I set it to screen or multiply, and then add a layer in between the subject and the bg and fill in the places I want visible, with the paintbrush, either set to black or white.
