Bert Monroy: Dreamscapes Volume 3

with Bert Monroy

Video: Welcome

(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Bert Monroy, and welcome to Dreamscapes. This is a continuation of Volume 2. What I really want to stress is that, everything you're going to see is being done with very bad photography. In fact, most of it is taken with a phone, not a big fancy camera. The point is that, you can do just about anything you can imagine with Photoshop. And what am going to use is just very simple throw away vacation shots and transform them into some real effects. The effect that you can easily create by just following simple steps in Photoshop. Nothing elaborate, no fancy studio is necessary.
