There are multiple ways to achieve a look like this, but the fastest way seems to be to layer the 'person' on top of a colored background and put the blend mode on 'multiply'. You wouldn't even need to cut out the person if the background is solid white.

You can find the blend mode dropdown above your layer panel, next to the opacity box.
