- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bert Monroy, and welcome to Dreamscapes. This is a continuation of Volume 2. 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, throw-away vacation shots, and transform them into surreal effects, effects that you can easily create by just following simple steps in Photoshop.
Nothing elaborate, no fancy studio is necessary. In fact, most of these things are the kind of vacation shots you would normally throw away. This is just very simple steps to create very fantastic scenes.
