What you'll learn

In this course you will learn all the principles you need to know in order to create a Photo Manipulation completely on your own.
I will explain you how I create my composites without any secret.
The course is 4 hours long with 25 videos.
All the images and PSD file is included. Also you will get my Photoshop brushes used in this video.
You can see the full course content below.

What you'll need

For this course you will need Photoshop CS5 and above, but Photoshop CC is recommended because I will use camera raw filter for the final color grading.
Also I will use Color Efex Pro filter for a final touch. It is not a must by any means, but I highly recommend it.

Because this is a COMPOSITING course, (not Photoshop course) you’ll  need some basic Photoshop knowledge.

“I enjoyed this course a lot. Some of stuff I already knew, but there was also a lot of new thing and tecniques. I took this course because I’m very keen on doing imaginative images, something that interests people and might bring my work to be seen more widely. ..and perhaps get me paid for an image someday.”
