Compositing Secrets in Photoshop

The Story Art Method

In this video you will learn how to tell compelling stories, by combining photographs in Photoshop. Karen Alsop, founder of Story Art in Australia, takes you through the entire process of making this Hey Diddle Diddle inspired piece.

Karen takes you out on the field (literally), as she photographs the animals and people to be used in the composite. Learn how to plan a project like this and also the steps to executing that plan. The majority of the time is spent in Photoshop. Learn how to cleanly cut out difficult subjects like animals with fur. Build a background plate, mash people and animals together and bring the magic by creating atmosphere and the right color to set the mood.

This video is just under 3 hours and is packed with information and tips, so that you can create stunning composites of your own! This video is made in Photoshop CC, but will work on all versions of Photoshop (Except Photoshop Elements).

All the photographs are included, so you can follow along step-by-step at your own pace! Note: This is Intermediate/Advanced level training. (Check out Sky City Project for Beginner/Intermediate)
