Advanced Photoshop Compositing: The Art of Storytelling
with Kirk Marsh
Step right up, step right up, and welcome to the big show! Join Kirk Marsh at the Vernardos Circus for a class on conceptual composite photography. In this class Kirk goes through his process of separately photographing a circus strongman and a juggler with the goal of compositing them both together into a fantastic and magical final image. Kirk goes through the gear used, his camera settings, the location set up, props, wardrobe, and how to approach creating the elements for the final composition. After the strongman and juggler shoot is completed, Kirk has an additional shoot with just the juggler in a variety of positions to create a fantasy composite of her in multiple locations within the final image. After the images are captured Kirk heads into the studio to share his compositing workflow. By the end of the class you’re sure to be inspired to create cool composites of your own or maybe even run away and join the circus! BUY COURSE

Portrait Photographer & Digital Artist
Kirk Marsh is an environmental portrait photographer and conceptual digital artist. His work uses a strong sense of post production to enhance a cinematic transportive narrative. His subjects are engaged in their environment and action. Kirk's love for humor is certainly seen in his images. His work can be seen in advertising campaigns, editorial stories and fine art galleries. With a background in the performing arts and circus (he toured with The Greatest Show on Earth for a year... and went to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Clown College as well as touring his solo silent comedy show around the world to over 53 countries) he has a style that is influenced heavily by magical realism and the fictions of our own minds.
