Creating Planetary Landscape
This is where we apply what we have learned about 3D by creating an eye popping planetary scene of two ringed planets overlooking a watery landscape.
Creating the Planetary Scene
Here we will discuss the primary compositional focus (the lighthouse subject) and how to compose it, while using the new Crop tool to alter your compositional so that you are never at the mercy of the original photographic perspective
