1 Day: Composite Photography I
Los Gatos, California
April 24 (9AM – 4PM)
8 participants only
** Sold Out **
A composite image is constructed by adding elements from other images. The intent is to make a final image that depicts what you envision at the point of capture. The outcome can vary from a very complex reconstructed scene to simple changes that are impactful.
This workshop is a combination of capturing the content and then processing it to make an image. First you will learn the critical elements you need to make your composite possible. Then with a sketch in hand, you’ll photograph your scene. Back in the classroom, you’ll process and composite the image.
When you start to master the “compositing” technique it opens new venues you didn’t think were possible. Imagine yourself as a painter with a camera in your hand!
Upon signing up for the workshop, you will receive a coursebook that details the photoshoot location, the “compositing” technique, and requirements for post processing.
What you'll learn:
• Planning your photoshoot and get creative
• Tips learned and applied over the years to composite images
• Working the light to match exposure
• Checklist to capture all the content - critical
• Post processing images with accuracy, speed and consistency
• Post processing tips and tricks learned over the years
• How to immerse yourself in composite photography (not to be missed!)
We are looking forward to meeting you at the composite photography workshop.
Don't delay your registration, as there is very few sessions scheduled this year.
Oliver Klink has been compositing images for years, mastering making large size images that are impactful. “The Great Migration” won grand prize at the PhotoCentral Gallery Spring Show in 2014 and other images have received many praises and received honorable mentioned in photo contests. “I am a painter with my camera as my brush. I love to see an image being transformed and depict my vision. The more you do it, the more you become creative to turn a documentary image into fine art.”
