Working with different type of composition
Photo realistic compositing, with the use of digital photos, places, objects and people. The background photo with waterfalls is a stock photo from Adobe stock Additional elements are also imported from stock photos. The model is from a photo shoot in studio with a five light setup. Two lights were located on the back sides, creating the rim light. Two were located front left and right, adding dimensional shape, and one was located up front in a 45 degree angle. This created even lighting and allowed adding directional shadows and highlight in Photoshop. That allows us to match stock photo lighting conditions.
Illustration project, this combines photos and rendered elements to create an illustration image.
Collage style compositing, this style may include different elements and text overlays
Creating posters with mixtures of photo realistic and collage techniques. How to color match with different elements. Creating color casting shadows. Where to find royalty free resources to create your own posters.
