Advanced Photoshop Compositing: The Art of Storytelling with Kirk Marsh

Step right up, step right up, and welcome to the big show! Join Kirk Marsh at the Vernardos Circus for a class on conceptual composite photography. In this class Kirk goes through his process of separately photographing a circus strongman and a juggler with the goal of compositing them both together into a fantastic and magical final image. Kirk goes through the gear used, his camera settings, the location set up, props, wardrobe, and how to approach creating the elements for the final composition.

After the strongman and juggler shoot is completed, Kirk has an additional shoot with just the juggler in a variety of positions to create a fantasy composite of her in multiple locations within the final image. After the images are captured Kirk heads into the studio to share his compositing workflow. By the end of the class, you’re sure to be inspired to create cool composites of your own or maybe even run away and join the circus!
