Creating Digital Composites

A couple weeks ago I did a photography lighting class in the studio for photographers and had a lot of questions regarding how we did our Creative Digital Images for seniors. Which got me to thinking…. why don’t I do a photography tutorial showing how we do these step by step. So that is exactly what I have done.

I have created a photography training video showing the process step by step. I start with the session and then spend about and hour walking you through the entire Photoshop process.

This is our most popular product with high school seniors and is now quickly becoming one of our best sellers for the younger age groups as well.

I start off this online photography class with lesson with a portrait session of a baseball player in the studio. We will guide you through the lighting setup and techniques we use when shooting our Creative Digital Images. Proper lighting is critical and makes the production process much easier. Watch as we photograph the session and the posing process we use for this style of photography.

Next stop, Photoshop! Watch and learn as we guide you through the post-process of combining the images to create this very cool composite. We will begin by covering the placement of the photos on the stage to create a dynamic final image.

After that, we cover the Photoshop tools and tricks necessary for our composite. You don’t have to be a Photoshop pro — we will take you step by step and carefully cover and describe these techniques for even the Photoshop novice. We will also take you through an in-depth discovery of the multiple possibilities one has with the masking and blending options found in Photoshop.

Finally, we will add a logo and show you how to create some finishing touches to spice up your final product.
