I have saved this version of the image as Linear burn.psd, found inside the 04_darken folder, and I am going to go ahead and turn off that Levels adjustment layer for now, we'll come back to it and then click on the model layer in order to select it, and I'll press Ctrl+J or Command+J on the Mac in order to jump it to a new layer.

And I'll go ahead and return this layer to the Normal Blend Mode by pressing Shift+Alt+N or Shift+Option+N on the Mac. Now we need to mask away the background, it's a flat light background. So it's pretty easy to do...
