Hollywood Style Compositing Tricks
Some Useful Tricks to Add that "Hollywood Look" to Your Images
In this newest project I have put together a few composting tricks I use in the context of a tribute poster to Sherlock Holmes. Interestingly this project will NOT involve any complex selections or even 3D. Here I will show you some of the time tested tricks that have worked well for me over the years. You can take these tips as a collective whole or use the individual techniques for various effects. We will take a simple studio shot and then through layer effects and blending tricks we will create a dark and mysterious composite. From beginning to end!
What you will learn:
• Creative use of layer masks
• Blending Textures
• Create the ultimate particle brush
• Finishing Effects
• and much more!
