  • A great course full of useful information and helpful tips. I would really recommend this course to anyone interested in compositing in photoshop. Will look for more like it in Creative Live. Thank you.
  • Holy moly! I've been compositing for a few years and although I know the basics of matching direction of light, shadows, color, etc. this course blew my mind with how much info and new, valuable tricks are packed in. I love that it's all substance and no fluff, and the substance is super useful. Before I even finished watching the entire thing I posted on my FB page about it, and a few fellow compositors are now purchasing it as well. Thanks so much Jesus, this was the best money I've spent in a long time!
