Lesson Info

Composite Blonde Hair into Light Background

Class Description

Capture and create a realistic portrait composite that allows your subject to be anywhere. In this session, Matt Kloskowski will show how to successfully set up a photograph for a composite. He’ll discuss lighting, angles, and some tips and tricks you can use to set yourself up for success right from the start. Once we have our portrait, we'll bring the photo in to Photoshop®, Matt will show how to make a detailed selection (including hair), and then add the person to a new background. You’ll learn how to make great selections, but you’ll also get some techniques for helping people “fit” into the background so they look like they were really there.

Matt is just so easy to listen to and follow, this course was particularly good to give you a well prepared framework to create a composite. Really fine step by step details on unifying the composite, creating lighting & atmosphere. His tips are clever and give great results.

The class was good for me as a beginner in this field, it covered the studio shot well and the use of photoshop, lightroom is clearly very powerful. I would have liked a segment on shooting the background particularly getting the angles correct so that the subject fits the background, just the pitfalls and must do's would have been nice. But overall I learnt a lot. Justin
