Essential techniques to create composites from multiple photos using Adobe Photoshop—from working around tricky exposure challenges to creating stronger group photos and crafting creative photo illustrations.
- Hi, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer and a teacher, and welcome to this course, Photoshop for photographers compositing projects. In this course we're gonna take a look at how we can composite multiple exposures together, and then how you can combine expressions together from different frames. We'll look at how we can take a subject from one environment then place that subject in a different environment. We'll look at how we can improve composition with multiple exposures by extending the background and changing the overall composition of a scene.
We'll also look at how we can change the sky or the background of a photograph. We'll take a look at how you can capture an action sequence, and then how you can combine all of these frames together in one image. We'll make some imaginative composites as well. We're gonna all of these topics and more. Without further delay, let's begin.
