Join Julieanne Kost, Digital Imaging Evangelist at Adobe, as she walks through her creative process and explains how she transforms disparate visual elements from multiple sources into a single, surreal, composited scene. She’ll share how and why she selects primary and secondary subjects, how she builds their environment, and when to add supporting elements to reinforce the visual narrative. You’ll discover the tools needed to fabricate images that enable the viewer to temporarily suspend their disbelief and enter a world inspired by thoughts and dreams. 

Topics include: 

  • Sources of inspiration for creating meaningful and unique concepts 
  • Developing ideas and refining a story
  • Using basic design principles
  • Choosing appropriate elements to create successful compositions
  • Unifying elements using perspective, light, color, and more
  • New Photoshop features that will enhance your compositing workflow
