We all have ideas and images spinning round in our head, surreal combinations of what we’ve seen to make something we’d love to see. Something outside of the realm of reality. Something fantastically awesome.

This course is an expression of those things we have drifting through our minds. We’ll make a surreal landscape inside a frame of clouds, giving the appearance of a dream… more like a daydream, actually! 

Once we've created the frame of clouds, we’ll place various fanciful images inside: including mountains, birds and flying elements. The concept is for us to create a “dreamy landscape” that appears to be streaming, dreamlike, from the base image of the woman lying in the grass.

We’ll be using a bunch of stock images, too. 21 in fact. So you’ll get used to combining lots of separate images to create one, final, brilliant photo-manipulation.

With over 4 hours of learning this course will take you through the full creative process. Step by step. Image by image. Dream by dream. We begin with the document setup (organisation for the win), all the way to final adjustments and retouching.

As always, you’ll have full access to all the stock images used within the course and the Final PSD file. We like to make things easy for you guys and girls! But remember, once you’ve taken this course, you can use some of the skills and practises you’ve learned to combine your own choice of images.

Taking this course will refine your skills, teach you new skills, and turn you into a better Photo Manipulator / Compositor. Let’s get to dreaming!
