The Art of Compositing - A full day on extracting and compositing!

Are you wanting to create cutting edge composites, but not sure how to begin?  Or do you currently create composites, but they lack that “believable” feel?  This is the workshop for you!  

Randy Pollard, M. Photog Cr., CPP has been creating composites for high school seniors and sports teams for over 10 years and can give you some tips and tricks to take your composites to a whole new level!  

The morning begins with an image creation session to create some raw materials for our compositing.  Creating the image is arguably the MOST important step of the process, and Randy will give you the three keys to creating an image that practically extracts itself.  

Then, Randy will go through the fastest extraction process he has found, plus an alternate process for that ‘difficult’ extraction!

Finally, we put it all together in a believable, impactful composite.  

This is a VERY hands on event, and you’ll be creating a composite in class with help through every step, so bring your camera and laptop and let’s get busy!  

If you’re only going to ONE seminar this year….go to Texas School…BUT - if you’re going to two, then go to Texas School and Randy’s Compositing class on August 28th! 

Randy is sponsored by Miller’s Labs.

Randy Pollard, M. Photog Cr., CPP and his wife Laura Ann Pollard M. Photog Cr., CPP own L-Ann Imaging and On the Edge Photography in Victoria, Texas.  Compositing is only one aspect of their specialties, which include High School Seniors, Babies, Children, Families and Commercial work.  They are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their studio, and their 30th wedding anniversary.

This class has been approved by PPA for one continuing education merit for each attendee. (approval in progress)

This is a hands-on class. You MUST bring your computer and a tablet (Wacom Intuos is recommended). If you don't have a tablet, beg, borrow, buy, or steal one, but you need one.

This is not an introduction to Photoshop. You will need to know a few basics, have used the brush tool, and be reasonably comfortable generally.
