In this workshop master Adobe Photoshop artist Uli Staiger takes you step by step through the process of creating the fanciful image of an old Soviet helicopter being used as a harvester. Learn how to combine supplied source images, make adjustments, and add details to create a complex, realistic scene with lots of layers. Along the way discover lots of tricks and techniques for painting with light and shadow, creating motion blur, brush-based masking, adding vignettes, and more.
(music playing) Perestroika is in the truest sense of the word, a breathtaking image. An old Soviet combat helicopter provides peaceful service as an harvester on a sunny cornfield. Among many different tips and tricks about how to take the pictures for this ambitious project, I will talk about the process of painting light and shadows. Also, I want to explain how to create motion blur, and how to use new brush-based masking techniques, which you have probably never seen before. Different correction layers change the colors and the contrast of the image and make it look like the still of an action thriller.
This training is designed for users who are familiar with Photoshop basics and who appreciate files with more than ten layers. Have fun.
