First, we will show you how to create the alpine backdrop with a winding mountain road. Once complete, we will then add the Fiat 500 to the scene… blurring the wheels, retouching the car, correcting the contrast, adding the shadow and driver are all taught in this course. Once the composition is complete, its then onto the final adjustments where we will make global changes to unify all the images.

Think this course is too difficult for you? Don’t be fooled! We have broken each step down into bite size chunks allowing users of all levels to follow along. Jump right in, tackle the techniques and you’ll be zooming towards Photoshop mastery in no time.
