BetterPhoto online instructor Jim Zuckerman is a top stock photographer and published author who frequently uses Photoshop to his artistic advantage. He loves to share his passion and his techniques. Check out one of Jim Z's eye-catching photo and his thoughts:
"One of my favorite techniques in Photoshop," says Jim Z, "is to mirror a photograph and then insert another element into the scene such that it isn’t mirrored. The above image is a Venetian background with a Carnival participant inserted behind the lamppost. I like placing subjects like this behind something because it makes the final composite more believable."
