Our Courses Are all Broken Down Into Small Lessons Creating Easy Breaks and Stopping Points
lesson 1: Introduction (free course preview)
Welcome to the course.
lesson 2: Extracting Subject
We must begin by removing the main subject from its original background since we will be adding a different one.
lesson 3: Adding Background
Add in the background. The image needs to have some similar lighting to the subject. Plus, the angle needs to work.
lesson 4: Painted Light Effects
We will manually add some effects of light spilling from the background over onto the subject.
lesson 5: Edge Effects and Atmospheric Glow
We will enhance the light effects we did in lesson 4 with more focused edge lighting.
lesson 6: Graphic and Particle Elements
Here we will add some more special effects to add that Hollywood look.
lesson 7: Light Flare Effects
Here we will add the colorful cinematic flare we see in so many posters these days.
lesson 8: HDR Toning
This step will really add some contrast and punch the colors not to mention help unify the whole scene.
lesson 9: Adding Text
Now we will add some 3D text to add more of that modern cinematic feel!
