Playlist - The Light

One of the most important (but missed) elements of a great composite has to do with LIGHT. When I first started compositing I didn’t understand how to look for light. I thought that cutting my subject out nicely and blending into the environment was enough to make it work. I missed the most important step, MATCHING the LIGHT.

In this series of videos I take you through everything to do with LIGHT including:

  • Creating beautiful atmospheric light in camera
  • Using and enhancing natural light
  • Using and enhancing studio lighting/strobes
  • Seeing the Light – Analysing a background
  • Manipulating the light on a subject
  • Manipulating the lighting effects in Photoshop with light and atmosphere brushes
