Create a Photo Manipulation of an Emotional Dancer in a Forest

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a scene of an emotional dancer in a forest. You'll learn how to combine and blend different stock photos in a cohesive scene, adjust color, use layer masks, manage lighting, work with groups, and more.

What you'll be creating

We'll start this tutorial by creating an autumn forest scene from two stock photos. Then we'll adjust color, shade and light as well as make a dreamy effect. Later we'll add the model and do some retouch to match her with the scene. After that, we'll use two stocks to create a lighting effect. Finally, we'll use some adjustment layers to boost the final result. You'll need Photoshop CS3 or newer to follow this tutorial.
