In this tutorial we’ll be learning what is perhaps the most import thing when it comes to compositing images together; perspective.
The techniques that I’m going to teach you in this video, will make you a much better Photoshop user. They will make your compositions look much more realistic, and you’ll know what types of images you’ll need to complete a great composite.
But before we go any further, I would like to announce that I was recently invited to become one of the admins, at the Photoshop and Lightroom group on Facebook.
The group is a large community of Photoshop users that share their work and their knowledge; and I would highly recommend you checking out.
I noticed one of Karen’s posts in the Photoshop and Lightroom group, which was an very nice image of a sunset and people walking on a field. However something seemed a bit off. Karen requested creative criticisms from other members, and people had a lot suggestions on what the problem was and how to fix it.
I then realized that perspective is a huge problem for a lot of people, and decided to make this tutorial.
So we’re going to take Karen’s composition, and see how we can fix the perspective, so that the subjects don’t look like their floating over the field.
You can get pretty much get everything else right, lighting, color, shadows, and extractions, but if the perspective is off, your viewer will know something is not right. They might not know exactly what it is, but they’ll know there’s something wrong with the image.
Don’t feel too bad if you’re making these perspective mistakes, I’ve seen movie posters, and advertisements that are just horrible, when it comes to perspective. So even some pros have problems with putting together multiple images from different sources.
