Another bundle is here from the Photoshop master—Corey Barker! We’re diving into the world of 3D compositing effects to create 2 different scenes.

First up we have a polaroid layout, and then we’ll get into playing with light, shadows, and colors!

Create A 3D Polaroid Effect

You’ll start with a photo of a Polaroid photo, transform it into a 3D object, and then create an entire scene in 3D space that would be impossible to do in real life. This project is a lot of fun and provides lots of room for creativity and experimentation.

Course Outline:

  1. Introduction
  2. Getting Started
  3. Adjusting the Surface Properties
  4. Adding a Photo to the Polaroid
  5. Building Composite
  6. Adding More Polaroid Photos
  7. Completing the Project

Illuminated Backdrops

In the second part of this class bundle, you’ll create an illuminated backdrop from scratch, place it in 3D space, create a floor that interacts with the backdrop, and then place silhouetted figures on the floor. We love how this final image came out!

Course Outline:

  1. Introduction
  2. Getting Started
  3. Introducing Color Element
  4. Customizing the Floor
  5. Adding the Dancers
  6. Bonus: Variations

Double the classes, double the fun—watch them both on KelbyOne!
