You’ve seen images you love but have no idea how to create them yourself.
You feel like your edits aren’t dramatic enough.
You’ve struggled to create interesting yet realistic composites in the past.
In this course, I teach you how to take your ideas and bring them all the way to a finished piece of art.
We start off with some basic tricks and I will lead you gradually through all the techniques you need to create your own incredible composites.
You will receive all my source files so you can follow along at home. This means you’ll be able to practice and master these techniques in no time!GET STARTED
In this lesson, I show you how to create dramatic reflections in the water. A pretty simple trick, but it works every time!
Here, we learn to clone stamp out some elements and create a nice plane for our alien landscape.
In this lesson, we insert a starry sky, and some mountains to help create our alien planet.
In this lesson, we add the moon and a nice glow to make it look like its reflecting light.
Here, we create sunbeams and a light source to tie it all together.
In this first lesson of this project, we create fog in the background to add depth.
Next, we cut out the tiger and place him in our composite.
In this lesson, we create a shadow in the right perspective and more shading on the tiger.
Here, we create snow and snowy footprints!
In this lesson, we learn how to make custom brushes and make a snow brush, to then add snow on the tiger.
In this lesson, we add all the lighting and color to bring it all together.
In this lesson, we learn to outline the light bulb using the pen tool and creating a vector path.
Here, we learn to create the water in the bulb from three pieces
In this lesson, we learn how to create shading and lighting to make the bulb and water more realistic.
Here we cut out the clownfish and add him into the light bulb.
We then add clouds and birds using cool brushes.
In this lesson, we add a sun and flares and then colorize it all to bring it together.
In this lesson, we take a New York skyline and edit it to make it more dramatic and fitting to the flying man.
We then cut out the man to extract him from the “Jumping in the Lake” photo, to place him above the skyline.
We end off by colorizing the composite and you’ll learn a couple of tricks to bring it all together.
We then outline some birds and drop them in the composite. We colorize them and add some blur to give them motion.
In this lesson, we use Camera Raw to do some basic color grading and then outline the model.
In this lesson, we put in some clouds and make the model look like the real thing!
In this lesson, we outline the leaf and create a darker background.
Here, we outline the mug and drop it into our composite. We also learn about gradient maps and colorize the liquid.
We then drop in the photo of the woman underwater and blend her into the mug.
In this lesson, we learn to make complex reflections and how to treat them to have the appropriate amount of blur.
In this lesson, we create refractions in the glass so that the background shows through into the mug.
We finish this project with some cool colorizing techniques and final touches.
“Following along and learning from Kelvin has been amazing. I’ve always wondered how people make these kinds of images, it seemed impossible...but now I can do it just as well!!”
“Every Photoshop user should do this course. Kelvin has plucked the most useful techniques that we should all know and teaches them in an easy to understand way meaning that anyone can actually produce the same results. Highly recommended!”
“I’ve been using Photoshop for about a decade. I got stuck in my ways using the same tools the same ways and this really opened my palette up. Totally reinvigorated and reimagining a lot of my work as a result - thanks Kelvin!!!!”
