It’s all perspective. When we create complex scenes and compositions we’re combining many different object perspectives and lighting. Photo-manipulation is about combining images seamlessly so that they appear to be one.

We’ll show you how to do that in this course.

Together, we’ll learn to add objects to the environment and to edit, place and adjust the colour so that the final creation is flawless.

We’ve decided we want to create a woodland scene with mountain bikers and passing deers that contrast the human and the natural. The beauty of photo-manipulation means we can take stock images of each main part of the scene in our imagination and put them together as one. We’ll start  by building the base image of the woodland before adding the two mountain bikers.

Once we have these elements added we’ll then add a herd of deer hurtling across the path disrupting the bikers on their trail. We’ll work the composition so we don’t just create something visually beautiful, but something dynamic and emotional.

And, as always with our courses, we’ll make everything POP with our final adjustments and retouching. You’ll be amazed with what you’ll achieve at the end of this course! Let’s rock.
