In this course, the first in a series dedicated to creative portrait adjustments, Chris Orwig shows how to swap out the background of a portrait with something new. This technique is similar to photo illustration and can result in some really striking and visually interesting photographs. Chris begins in Camera Raw, where he creates multiple exposures of the original raw file and combines them in a PSD file, and then moves to Photoshop to mask the subject and copy the mask into the new background. In the second half of the course, he'll show you how to make the subject look at home in her new environment using Edge Glow; brightness, color, and tone adjustments; and lens flares.
Alright, congratulations on making it through this project. Here's a big thumbs up for you. You know, I think projects like this one are so worthwhile. Because sometimes we can really get caught up in all of our work in Photoshop. And every once in a while we need to do something which is just visually interesting and intriguing. So that's what I recommend you do now. What I want you to do is to go out and capture a few images. And capture those images with the idea of combining them together. And think about how you can create a bit of a photo illustration.
Which has some drama and vivid colors in it as well. See if you can't integrate some of the techniques you learned in this course into your own work flow in working on your own images. Well, in closing, it is always an honor to have a chance to work with you, so thanks for watching this course. I hope to see you in another one. Bye for now.
