Hello and thank you for checking out this course!
My name is Lucas Ridley and I work in the visual effects industry on films like Transformers, Suicide Squad, and Ready Player One.
In this course we will be creating a visual effects photograph!
Pet owner's love this idea and if you're a photographer this will be a unique technique you can add to offer your clients. Just imagine doing family portraits and including this service! The family will love it! If you're a pet owner then you already know how cool this would be. Make a new profile photo for social media that will get attention!
You do not need any prior experience with photography or Photoshop. You can download a free trial of Photoshop to follow along. This course is a good introduction to Photoshop and for those familiar with it you will learn how to think like a visual effects artist to make a believable photo!
This course is divided into two sections:
- Taking the Photo
- Make It Look Great In Photoshop
I will walk you through step-by-step how I made the example photo from taking the photo and all the way through each little step and tool I use inside Photoshop to enhance and sell this effect.
Thanks for joining me and I look forward to seeing what you make!
