- Hi there. My name is Uli Staiger. I'm a photographer and retoucher from Berlin, Germany. I've created a collection of new Photoshop workshops that walk you through how to create a stunning scene, step-by-step. By following along with me, you'll learn numerous, sophisticated techniques and see them applied in a real world setting. Each of these workshops include all the exercises files you'll need to follow along with me, step-by-step. The topic of this workshop is a sun flooded, tabletop scene that combines classic still life photography and creative Photoshop techniques, creating a breath-taking image.

Transparency, light effects and shadows are all created using Photoshop tools only. You will learn much about how to work with light including how to paint some and generate light reflections. Have fun while creating this out of this world scene.
