Compositing allows you to bring the vivid images of your dreams to life. Join Phlearn's Aaron Nace for an exploration of the artistic and technical skills that are essential to creating stunning composite images.
You'll see Aaron's core techniques in action, from start to finish - beginning with a green screen photography shoot and ending with an elaborate post-production compositing session. Aaron will shoot a sports-themed action shot and a model in a flowing dress. Then he'll teach you how to build a background out of multiple images with a focus on making the new background dynamic and believable. You'll also learn lighting techniques for matching your photo shoot light to the light in the alternate backgrounds. Finally, you'll explore the best ways to use Photoshop to assemble your images so they match your unique, creative vision.
This course will teach you everything you need to know to conceptualize and produce complex, visual masterpieces driven by your imagination. What will you create?
