About Course

In this class, Scott gets you up and running fast on creating realistic composite images (where you put your subject on a different background or different environment than they were photographed on), and he takes you through a host of techniques that cover the “Holy Grail” of compositing, which is masking hair and keeping lots of detail intact. He covers a number of different techniques, including using channels and blend mode tricks for easy masking. You’ll learn how to match tone and color and finishing moves that pull it all together. It’s a really solid introduction into the art of masking and compositing and the essential techniques you need to know from the start.
