Whether you’re familiar with compositing or you’ve always wanted to explore it, you’ll love this series because it reveals every secret you need to accomplish mind-blowing composites. Although the specific focus is on creating a dramatic portrait composite using a studio-lit model and an edgy HDR background, the concepts covered here apply to every type of compositing, whether the subject is a person, a pencil, or anything in between. Through precise control of light, color, texture, and atmospheric effects both in the studio and in Photoshop, it’s possible to craft scenes that would be nearly impossible to capture solely with a camera. This enlivening process has been the center of Mark’s creative ambitions for over a year and he joyfully shares all that he has learned.

Praise for the Dramatic Portrait Compositing Video Tutorial Series
“I recently purchased Mark’s awesome Dramatic Portrait Compositing video series and when I posted my very first composite to FaceBook, I received nothing but compliments. I always thought I could create a composite like this, but had doubts in the back of my mind. Mark’s lighting setup and clear post-processing instructions made it fun and easy. I’ve always wanted to be able to create amazing composites and now I can!”
