Recently I got to interview, Dennis Dunbar. Dennis is a composite artist and retoucher who says ‘Ever since 1991 I’ve been adding the Photoshop Magic to movie posters and images for ad campaigns. And I love working on cool images whether they’re for the latest blockbuster movie or a shot of a beautiful model or a product shot for a new ad campaign.’

This is perhaps the best possible explanation of a brilliant series of images by photographer Pelle Cass.

Nemanja Sekulic is a photographer, Digital artist, and Educator who creates dynamic conceptual imagery.

We never outgrow our childlike ability to be amazed. At least I know I haven’t.”

In their recent video and article, the guys from FStoppers wonder if photo titled Moonlit Dreams can possibly be real.

In this 90 second video, Jesús Ramirez from the Photoshop Training Channel shows us a workaround for this. It’s a trick I often use myself for images here on DIYP, especially when compositing product photos onto new backgrounds.
