Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi there. My name is Uli Staiger. I'm a photographer and retoucher from Berlin, Germany. I've created a collection of new Photoshop workshops that walk you through how to create a sturning scene, step by step. By following along with me, you'll learn numerous sophisticated techniques, and see them applied in a real world setting. Each of these workshops include all these exercises files you need to follow along with me, step by step. In this Photoshop workshop, I will show you how to build a romantic, fairy tale like scene. A sculpture is getting a dress surrounded by hundreds of fireflies. After building the landscape background from four different files, the fireflies will be created using a custom built brush tip. Get inspired by the striking lighting of the sculpture and the landscape. One item of particular note, almost all the light effects in this scene were not photographed but instead painted.
