Select the background.

Eventually you want the subject selected. However, if your background is a continuous, neutral tone, it’s much easier to first select the background. Use the Quick Selection tool and drag around the background. If you select too much, press the Alt/Option key and drag the cursor in the area you want to retain to remove part of the selection.

When you finish adjusting the selection, choose Select→Inverse. Now your subject is selected.
