Natural effects are a brilliant way to add energy to a photo or a design. Elements like fire, water, and smoke are all very familiar but often difficult to capture in a way that is useful as a digital asset. One solution is to purchase stock images, but what if you could generate these effects for yourself? In this course, Photographing Digital Assets, you'll be taught how to achieve these effects from start to finish. You will learn safe and fun techniques to create these effects in way that is controllable and easy to capture with a digital camera. Then you will learn how to best capture these effects with a basic DSLR, and finally how to process the images in Photoshop to create a library of digital assets. By the end of this course, you'll be able to create these effects for yourself and you'll stop having to pay for the same tired stock images everybody else uses--and your work will be better for it! Software Required: Adobe Photoshop.
