Compositing for Portraits – element additions, background swaps, and more!
Welcome to my in-depth portrait compositing course! In this set of tutorials, we study tools and techniques that can be applied to a vast range of different compositing scenarios.
Whether it’s adding flowers, building some fog, placing a model in front of the Eiffel Tower, or creating an entirely new world – this course will provide you with the tools to do it!
This is an extremely in-depth course, which can take you all the way from a beginner to a pro-level portrait compositor.
This course is for you if:
- you are looking to make your work stand out and explore new creative paths with your portraits!
- you are an editor! You do not need to be a portrait shooter to learn or do any portrait compositing. There are lots of resources available online to access images to work with.
- you have an understanding of the Photoshop interface and base tools, such as layers, masks, adjustments, etc.
Note: This course is built for Photoshop. I would not recommend downloading this course to apply to another editing program or phone app.
Disclaimer: This course does NOT cover any retouching or coloring/stylization! It focuses solely on the compositing process. If you’d like to learn those other aforementioned workflow elements, I’d recommend taking a look at the Retouching & Stylization Bundle!
