How To Create Seamless Photo Composites


As the market becomes more competitive, it gets harder to stand out from other photographers to potential clients. Creating strong conceptual ideas through compositing allows you to defy what can be accomplished within a single camera frame.

Erik Almas is an international commercial photographer who is known for his visually stunning composite work. In this class, he will show you what tools you’ll need to create a truly seamless composite. You’ll learn about light, the proper lenses, camera positions and settings as well as establishing the proper workflow to simplify the post process. He’ll share simple illustrations to explain what the most common mistakes are in composite photography and how to avoid them.

By the end of this class, you will have the tools to start creating beautiful composites of your own.  

Software Used: Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5.1



  • If you are expecting to learn how to composite, this is not the course for you. However, if you want to know the fine details of compositing well, you want to refine your work, this is the course.
  • Agree w/Mr. Landis. Excellent start as to how to build your story, but the Photoshop is done in a manner akin to an Indy car driver telling an individual with his drivers license that this is easy. Driving is easy, driving and Indy car takes more definition and demonstration.
  • The set or location set-ups and in-camera requirement instructions were excellent, but the post processing section was too short and lacking in enough detail and explanation.
