Photoshop photomanipulation video tutorial. Composite Photography. Learn how to put a subject into a new background to create a fantasy image.
More than 45 minutes of video showing the whole procedure done to get the artwork "Spring fairy".
Normal speed, without acceleration. English interface. No voice recorded, but there are some text I considered convenient to explain the work.
Work done: - skin softening and model approach - model integration in the digital background - change of dress color - dodge & burn technique - hair lighting - techniques to create a rich atmosphere on the scene
The time of extract the subject from the original photo is not included because it is very basic and there are a lot of videos showing how to do it. I recomend the Photoshop channel on Youtube to learn how to do the basic things.
Important : Two third-party plugins have been used, however this is not necessary if you prefer others to achieve the same effect:
- Imagenomic Portraiture to retouch skin - Alien Skin to focus the model
I have also used some overlays of lights (available in my shop).
