About This Class

The aim of this tutorial is to demonstrate that personal projects are an excellent source for creative inspiration and keeping skills honed.

In this case, I undertook to photograph ‘toy animals’ in a natural environment. I wanted to see how realistic I could make them appear in a natural setting.

In Photoshop, I used images of real animals to add texture to the photos of the ’toy’ ones. I also used other tools and techniques such as Blend Modes, Motion Blur, the Smudge Tool and the Warp Tool to give the toy animals a more realistic look!
