How to Photograph and Create Fun Holiday Cards

Watch How to Photograph and Create Fun Holiday Cards

It’s the holidays, and you need to start thinking about how to make those holiday cards.  You’re into photography, and into Photoshop. Instead of taking the same picture for your holiday card, or running to the mall to get that moment with Santa – how about making a card that they’ll really remember.  This class will show you how to use a simple playground to make a funny scene using simple gear and Photoshop. We’ll then move back into the lab and show you post processing tricks that will take that image to the next level.  We’ll even add to the Christmas Card by using compositing – and our library of Santa Claus pictures that are yours to keep! watch trailer | watch course
