First start Photoshop and go to File > New. Then again go to File > Place to open an image that you want use for this task. Then you need to rotate use image, then both will be same orientation. Re-size the photos, so that they will be same size.

Next go to Layer then New then Layer and press OK. Set backgrounds color of black, click new layer and click Ctrl+Backspace to fill the new Layer at black. Now need to create duplicate image background layer by Layer then Duplicate Layer then OK. Now pull the black layer within two image layers.

Click the top image layer, then click Add Layer Mask from the foot of the Layer Palette.
