Come to the LA Web Pros Meeting in Los Angeles on Thursday June 15th for Photoshop Compositing Secrets of the Pros featuring Dennis Dunbar http://bit.ly/2skNfmo
In this workshop Dennis will share many of the techniques he uses to make complex composite images from Movie Posters to LifeStyle and Product shots. Whether it’s combining many elements or dramatically re-working a single shot Dennis will show how the same techniques apply. He’ll cover the various challenges that face those who would tackle such tasks such as: Masking, Color Correction, Blending, and matching Noise or Grain.
Dennis will discuss several ways to create a professional quality mask as well as how to check to make sure your mask is working the way it should. He’ll delve into Color Correction using Curves and how to simplify your Layers using Clipping Groups. Then he’ll show you how to blend disparate images making them look as if they all belong together through the use of Depth of Field, adjusting the density and color as well as other techniques for matching the Noise or Grain of the various elements.
