Even with perfect mastery of all Adobe Photoshop's tools and filters, unless you get the perspective right, your montages will always look a little off. In this workshop, author and expert Steve Caplin teaches how to work with horizons, vanishing lines, and Photoshop's extraordinary Vanishing Point filter. Plus, learn how to adapt a photograph so that it fits in with the perspective of any scene in which you want to place it.
(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Steve Caplin. And I'm the author of How to Cheat in Photoshop, 100% Photoshop, and Art and Design in Photoshop. I'm also a freelance digital artist working mainly for national and international magazines and newspapers. Over the years, I've tutored and offered critiques to a wide range of Photoshop users of all skill levels and of all walks of lives. And what I've discovered is this. You may know all about Photoshop's filters. You may have a perfect knowledge of what all the tools and adjustments do.
But if you get the perspective wrong in your montages, they'll just look uncomfortable and awkward to the viewer. Perspective is perhaps the single biggest problem for most Photoshop artists. How do we line up several people in a scene? How do we draw pictures on a wall that look as if they're really part of the wall? In short, how do we make sure that our montages are convincing and realistic? The key to getting it right is a thorough knowledge of how to read and work with perspective.
And here's the good news, it really isn't that hard. In this workshop, I'll show you the basic techniques and then go on to see how we can put them to use in our everyday Photoshop work. We'll cover Horizons, Vanishing Lines and Photoshop's extraordinary Vanishing Point filter. As well as showing how to adapt a photograph so that it fits in with a perspective of any scene in which we want to place it. Finally, we'll see how to create a real solid 3D object from a photograph using only the Vanishing Point filter. I learned about using perspective the hard way by making mistakes and figuring out what went wrong.
I hope this workshop will help you to quickly understand what has taken me years to learn.
