Welcome

- Perestroika is, in the truest sense of the word, a breathtaking image. An old Soviet combat helicopter provides peaceful service as a harvester on a sunny crop field. 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 color and the contrast of the image, and make it look like a still of an action-thriller.

This training is designed for users who are familiar with Photoshop basics, and who will appreciate files with more than 10 layers. Have fun.
