Description

In this video you will learn how to quickly and easily combine 3 simple photos into an epic composite photo in Photoshop CC! This class is great for beginners to the photo editing and digital art world with little to no experience in Photoshop. Photos are included in the project resource area for you to use for your project.  

Why learn photo compositing?

It is not only an incredible way to tell stories and create surreal visions that are impossible to photograph in real life but it is also an incredibly valuable skill for every photographer to have in their pocket. If you are not into creating surrealism style photos, this class will still benefit you and increase your editing skills for your photography. Learning to composite opens the door to take your photographs to the next level and create images that you love.

Photoshop Skills Learned in this Class:

  • isolating subjects using ‘select and mask’ as well as the elliptical marquee tool
  • embedding and transforming photos within your project for great composition
  • adjustment and gradient layering along with blending modes to blend everything together
  • using the brush tool to create shadows, light and special effects 

You will learn

Class Project: 

Creating your own composited image! 

Your project for this class is to take 3 photos and combine them to design a composite photo using the tools we discussed in class.

You can use the stock photos provided in Class Resources (stock photos from unsplash.com) or choose your own. If you choose your own: choose a background and two subjects – be sure to select one round subject to be able to practice with the elliptical marquee tool.

Two sites I use regularly for amazing free stock photos to download for your projects are unsplash.com and pexels.com. They are both fantastic resources, especially if you are new to the photography world and still building your own inventory of stock photos.

When you are finished please share your composited photo in the class project gallery. I can’t wait to see your creation!

Tip: Creating your project step by step as you are watching the video, pausing and playing when needed, is a great way to not miss important steps and be able to focus on your work rather than on having to remember it all the first time through.
