About This Class

Hello and thank you for checking out this course! 

My name is Lucas Ridley and I work in the visual effects industry on films like Transformers, Suicide Squad, and Ready Player One.

In this course we will be creating a visual effects photograph!

Pet owner's love this idea and if you're a photographer this will be a unique technique you can add to offer your clients. Just imagine doing family portraits and including this service! The family will love it! If you're a pet owner then you already know how cool this would be. Make a new profile photo for social media that will get attention!

You do not need any prior experience with photography or Photoshop. You can download a free trial of Photoshop to follow along. This course is a good introduction to Photoshop and for those familiar with it you will learn how to think like a visual effects artist to make a believable photo!

This course is divided into two sections:

  • Taking the Photo
  • Make It Look Great In Photoshop

I will walk you through step-by-step how I made the example photo from taking the photo and all the way through each little step and tool I use inside Photoshop to enhance and sell this effect.

Thanks for joining me and I look forward to seeing what you make!

Instructor and Animator

Hi! I'm Lucas and I make a living as an animator and director.

I'm originally from Kentucky but have lived all over the US and am currently living in Los Angeles, CA.

For the last decade, I've had the privilege of animating on movies like Avengers: Infinity War and directing short films for LEGO.

I love sharing in my courses what I learn from my pursuit in the film and game industry to help others achieve their creative and career goals....
