How would I recreate this effect using blending modes in Photoshop?
One of the simplest methods would be as follows:
- Create a base layer and fill it with your desired flat colour.
- Place your image on the layer above.
- If the image is not already black and white then go to
Image > Adjustments > Desaturateto remove the colour.
- Set the image layer blend mode to MULTIPLY in the layers palette.
- Place your white text on top of the image.
