The Three Pillars are the secret to accurately constructing effective composites.
We’ll cover each one in depth in the three sections of the course.
In this first section of the course, we’ll cover one of the most important elements of photo manipulation; Perspective.
This is also one of the aspects that people struggle with and get wrong the most.
So in these lessons, I will teach you my techniques for finding and matching the perspective of all images in any composite – guaranteeing correct and believable composites, every time.
Like in photography, Light plays a crucial role in photo compositing.
Trying to create a composite using images with a different type of light is a sure way to failure. Also, having the wrong type of shadow or a shadow in the wrong place will ruin any photo manipulation.
That’s why, in this section, we’ll learn about the different types of light and how to use them. We’ll also explore how shadows work and how to paint them correctly.
The final section of the course is about Color Correction and matching the colors of the images in our composites to seamlessly blend them into one unified piece of art.
We’ll learn about the three properties of color and how these play a significant role when merging multiple photos into one image.
I will also share tried-and-tested processes and techniques I use to color-match photos in my photo manipulations, which have made my life easier, and my work better.
Some of the work I created using the concepts you’ll learn in this course.
This course is a must!
The course is well structured and split into the fundamental understandings of photo manipulation.
It provides you with deep knowledge of how light and shadows work, along with perspective and colour grading.
This course is a must for every digital artist or designer who is looking into starting or upping their game in photo manipulation and digital matte painting.
A comprehensive guide to photo manipulation.
This course has been a game changer for me.
It’s unbelievably helpful to understand the theory behind photo manipulation, not just what tools to use.
If I hadn’t taken this course, I would still be struggling.
The information in this course is more than complete and helpful, and it helped me so much to find the best way to do my artworks without wasting time thinking about what I need to do or what would be the next step.
Thank you so much!
A real course.
The best course I have followed.
The theory and examples ensure the basics in your composites are good. I did other courses where you do exactly the same as the instructor without learning why it was important to do so. But with this course, I can start to make my own ideas and artwork.
You need some Photoshop knowledge, and more practice examples would make this course even better. But I am very happy with this course. Thank you.
Solid information about the foundation of every artwork.
The course gives solid information about the foundation which every professional artwork should take into consideration.
It shows great examples that you can use as a guide and compare your work with. The modules are explained in detail that cuts straight to the point, without ambiguous information.
Even recommended for people who’ve been working for years but still can refresh their knowledge and pay attention to important foundational details.
Everything about the course was very helpful.
It will open your eyes and make you think deeper. It was very appreciated.
Unlike most Photoshop courses and YouTube videos, this course is not just a step-by-step tutorial where you blindly try to replicate what I’m doing.
Instead, this course will provide you with fundamental knowledge and techniques so that you can successfully create your own photo manipulations from scratch.
This course is for creative designers, photographers, and Photoshop users who want to improve their photo manipulation game.
If you often struggle with your photo composites but cannot quite put your finger on what’s wrong, this course is for you.
I’m a passionate and seasoned photo manipulation artist. Through the years I have discovered the secrets to creating kick-ass photo composites, which I will share with you in this course.
This course is designed to teach you fundamental principles but not how to use specific Photoshop tools. Therefore, a basic to intermediate level in Adobe Photoshop is recommended.
