This course will take you through the entire process of creating eye catching composite images with your photography. Everything is covered, from setting up lighting to capture your models, background selections, blending multiple elements into a scene and shading, color matching and final image output.

You will also receive a link to download a selection of high-resolution files for your own use in creating composite images including backgrounds, skies and textural elements.

The course is planned as a four hour hands-on workshop where you will be given instruction on the details behind lighting a subject for use in a composite image, how to cut-out that subject and blend them into a new background scene, considerations for making the images look natural together, color blending and shading, adding atmospheric and lighting elements, and finalizing the image for print or web presentation.

As this is a highly interactive course, overall time may vary depending on questions and other factors. The entire course will be video recorded including the full on-screen editing process and descriptions, and each attendee will be given free lifetime access to the recording, so there's no worry about needing to remember every detail of the process. If for any reason you need to leave before the end you will have all the information available.


Price for the course is just $145, which includes the full 4 hours+ of instruction in-studio, working with a professional model, and access to our Facebook group for continued help and support in all aspects of photography.

Snacks and drinks will all be provided. If there are any special requests (vegan, etc.) please contact us at least 2-days prior to the event.


Register for the class prior to 12:00 a.m. Eastern time on August 6th, and you will be entered to win a MagMod Basic Kit. This is a fantastic professional grid and color gel lighting modifier for use with almost any speedlight style camera flash. We will be using this in the course for special lighting effects with our model. 

The MagMod kit retails for $90, and is a fantastic addition to any lighting kit!!
