Compositing in Photoshop is everywhere today, magazine, movie posters, ads. It’s “the technique” that’s hot.
This is a very simple introduction that will take through all the steps to make a believable composite in three steps :
Creating an appealing background.
Extracting our subject using the new tools available Since Photoshop CS 4, it has become very easy including wispy hairs.
Blending both photos and making the color and luminosity to match.
Just basic photoshop knowledge needed.
While teaching I try to follow two rules :
1. No technical terms explained with technical words, but with simple English.
2. No theory, practical and visual examples only.
Many photographer around the world have expanded their customer base and fees because they master compositing. It’s going to be more and more requested and this book will give the tools you need to get started.
