Come up with creative concepts and learn how to apply them to your photography composition's narrative

A course by Carlos Herrejón

To create a powerful photo composite, as with any artistic work, you have to take into account certain factors and follow a creative process. Many people believe that everything lies in good postproduction but, for visual artist Carlos Herrejón, the previous phases of conceptualization and preproduction are equally important and the key to his well-known photo composites.

In this course, professor Carlos Herrejón will teach you how to make an artistic photographic composite, from his creative and narrative conception, preproduction, photographic shoots, editing, and final compositing.
