Whether you're a beginner or Photoshop pro, this class will inspire you to look at images differently, make your own, and have a lot of fun in the process. 

This one-hour walk-through is loaded with tips, tricks and keyboard shortcuts as Pete shares the L.E.N.S. system for compositing and how to fine-tune the four key components of a successful composite:
