Create Impactful Composites in Photoshop

Composites are more than just merging images together. To make a realistic composite, one needs to consider light sources and perspective. By using Adobe® Photoshop® you can create worlds and scenes with your photography that would take extreme budgets to capture in camera. 


In this class you’ll learn:

  • How to use adjustment layers to check the luminance, saturation, and hue of a composite.
  • How to make composites come to life by adding ambient color.
  • How to use familiar tools in unconventional ways to help you create realistic composites

Software Used: Adobe Photoshop CC 2015

    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!
