Tutorial: Photo Manipulation / Compositing

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all! Let me introduce myself. My name is Rens (Instagram @i.am.rensi).

I've made the switch from PS to Affinity Photo since summer 2019 and I absolutely love it. I figured there's quite some of you asking how to create surreal imagery, so I decided to create tutorials about manipulation and photo compositing. You can find them on my YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/2qABVXW

I will show you step by step how I created these two fun images.

Let me know what you think of them and how I can improve my videos so I can serve you better!

Stay creative!

@Patrick Connor Thanks ! Yea I actually tried that first but couldn’t make it work. Assumed I had to get a forum status to upload tuts or something.. But I’ll try again. Btw, aren’t the tags that I used suitable ?

Yes I think that you may be right. I'll check your status on Monday.

Your tags are fine, thanks for asking

Very well done, Rens: they look quite realistic.
I've done quite a few over the years, mostly for comic effect on social media, like this one ...
Image may contain: sky, outdoor, nature and text

(I guess from your name you're probably a Netherlander? Just in case you didn't know, the squirrel's nest is called a drey, and the brewer's wagon is called a dray -- both pronounced the same way in English.)

I started some years ago with Paint Shop Pro, before Affinity came along. I've just made a non-humorous one, which I'll post to the forum in a moment. Finding suitable images to start from can be a problem, and in the past I've 'borrowed' things through Google, like these two -- which is rather naughty of me.

Thank you very much @Kasper-V! And yes indeed I'm from the Netherlands. That's a fun composition indeed, but even better to know the idea behind it ! There are many websites you can source high quality images from. I do use Google every now and then but usually Unsplash, or Pexels! You should definitely check these out.

Thanks for the tip Rens -- in fact, I signed up with them not long ago. They are very good indeed,  and I don't like to 'steal' other people's work.
