Hi. Welcome back! Here in this chapter, we're going to be talking about Blending modes. And what's so interesting about Blending modes is it gives us the ability to blend multiple elements, or multiple things together in order to create a different effect. You know, whenever I think of blending, I think about other arts, for example like music. I really like the music of Jack Johnson, whose pictured on the computers in the background. One of the things that musicians do, like Jack and other musicians, is they take these different elements: the vocals, the guitar, the drums, the bass, and then they bring these elements together to create something completely different.
And as you learn more about Blending modes, what you need to do is, of course, learn how we can blend things together, but then also develop that artistic sensibility of how much blending to do, how to blend different photographs together, how to blend different adjustments together in order to create interesting, engaging and compelling images.
