Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up the background, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Here we're going to take a look at how we can build or create some imaginative composites.…The first one that we'll be working on was photographed and thought up by one of…my students, Cooper Jordan. …Cooper thanks a ton for the idea and also for the use of these files here.…And you can see in the Layers panel that we have a photograph of a light bulb…which is held up by a clothespin, and we have another photograph of the bottom…part of the light bulb.…We'll composite these two together in just a moment.…We also have a stick that he found on the ground and took a picture of, and then…this little treetop that he photographed, and this was a tree that he bought at…a little hobby shop.…
So what we're going to do in this project is we're going to build a tree and…we're going to put it inside of this light bulb.…All right, well let's start off by working on the light bulb.…Here we'll click into the Screw layer and we'll go ahead and just click and drag…and bring this over to this part of the image.…
