- Hi I'm Bert Monroy, and welcome to Dreamscapes Volume Two. This is a continuation of Volume One. But what I really want to stress is that everything you're going to see is being done with very bad photography. In fact, most of it is taken with a phone not a big fancy camera. The point is that you can do just about anything you can imagine with Photoshop. And what I'm going to use is just very simple throwaway vacation shots and transform them into surreal effects. Effects that you can easily create by following simple steps in Photoshop.
In some cases, they'll be shots that will be done specifically for Dreamscape. And even then those shots will be shot against a garage door, just putting on a very simple props, nothing that requires a very elaborate set-up. This is just very simple steps to create very fantastic scenes.
