    Videos by this instructor:

    santa-clause-tutorial.jpg
    Shooting Santa Claus for a cover
    Adrian's in the Christmas spirit! And let this video be a subject that is Christmas related! Adrian had to shoot a cover for a magazine entirely in the Christmas style. And well... let Santa Claus be a friend of his... After shooting a few portraits, Adrian sets to work with Photoshop to deliver a high-quality cover for this magazine. With this video he takes you from the complete light set-up to the complete image processing.



    flooded-amsterdam.jpg
    Flooded Amsterdam
    In this video, digital artist Adrian shows how he created the image of Flooded Amsterdam. He focuses on the interaction between water and the environment. He also shows how the water splashes can be made freestanding so that the whole scene comes across as credible.


    borobudur.jpg
    The beautiful Borobudur put in the light
    Sometimes you arrive at a place that is special, but where the light is just not as you intended it to be. Adrian shows you that this doesn't have to be a problem. For example, by adding another sky, a mist and a warm colour, you can easily create a beautiful incidence of light, in which case the largest Buddhist monument in the world, the Borobudur, is depicted even more spectacularly. Adrian will show you what it takes.



    rotterdam-skyline.jpg
    There is music in the air of Rotterdam
    Rotterdam has all the characteristics of a metropolis. And in that metropolis, the music from the water's edge will sound to your ears. At least... when your name is Adrian Sommeling. With his unique creative mind, he sees other qualities in seemingly ordinary buildings. In the creation of this photo, the tall buildings and the famous Erasmus Bridge serve as musical instruments that are played by himself and his son Nic. In this video Adrian explains how the photo came about.



    making-off-kratos.jpg
    Making off Kratos with Oliver Richter
    One of the videos shows how Oliver Richter, the world's longest bodybuilder, was photographed in the studio by three Mango Ice photographers. Adrian was one of them and you could see how he captured Oliver and what the end result was. In this video photo is discussed in more detail. Adrian takes you with him and shows you how his workflow went. He walks through all the layers in Photoshop and explains more about the post-production of this impressive shot of Oliver.



    red-trees.jpg
    Turn a summer forest into an autumnal scene
    A summer forest has its own specific characteristics. But what if you actually want to photograph a forest with autumnal shades in that summer period? Digital Artis Adrian shows you in this video how you can easily introduce the autumn via Camera Raw (Lightroom engine) in the summer in order to shoot an autumnal photo. You don't need any extra plugins for this.



    glowing-mushrooms.jpg
    The recipe for Glowing Mushrooms
    You know them... the so-called bucket list. There will undoubtedly be photographers who have such a list in their pocket and maybe you are one of them. Adrian has also collected a whole list with pictures he wants to make. One of those wishes was to shoot Glowing Mushrooms. You need the right time of year, but then there is often enough choice in the type of mushroom. In this video, Adrian takes you through the editing process. He shows you how to shoot Glowing Mushrooms from two photos relatively easily.



    get-inspired-by-paintings.jpg
    Get inspired by paintings
    You know... A great lack of inspiration, but you do want to take a picture. A favourite subject to be inspired is by looking at the beautiful paintings that other creative minds have made. In this video Adrian was inspired by the work of Carel Willink to make a composition of it (see example painting). Adrian shows you what his way of working and thinking is in this video.



    willink-full-post-process.jpg
    Bonus video about the editing of the idea of Carel Willinks work
    This bonus video is an addition to the video 'Get inspired by paintings'. It gave a general explanation of how the image was created. In this video Adrian goes deeper into it. He shows you how the techniques used for the final photo work. An instructive video for those who want to optimize their editing techniques.



    photoshop-basics.jpg
    Get started on Photoshop
    Did you know that there are still photographers who don't use Photoshop? Lightroom is often used to process and edit a series of images. But if you want to edit a single image optimally to your perfect image, then Photoshop is the software of choice. The possibilities offered by Photoshop can be overwhelming. That's why Adrian will accompany you with this video and introduce you to the settings you need as a photographer to achieve the best possible editing.



    compositing-basics.jpg
    Complete tutorial of Compositing Basics
    In this complete tutorial of almost four and a half hours, Adrian explains how to make a composition. He explains step by step what his working method is. Really everything is covered. From photographing to cutting out the models. But also the making of shadows, the techniques dodge and burn and the finishing touch will be discussed extensively. Nothing is kept secret by him. You'll get a complete look behind the scenes and you'll be able to learn all the details of the post processing.

    Magic Forest


    Digital artist Adrian Sommeling came across an ad some time ago. It showed a group of trees together where you look through the trees and get a kind of tunnel effect in the forest. That inspired Adrian to make such a composition himself. With this video, he shows you how he went about creating this beautiful composition. A real Magic Forest, enjoy!

    Apples and textures


    How to create a 3D effect with textures? Composite artist Adrian Sommeling explains in this video how he works. The goal is to create a still life in which two apples are the main subject. Adrian shows how he creates a 3D effect in this project. How he deals with depth, light, and shadows. Everything can be brought back to simplicity. But by optimizing that basis you will be able to learn to further integrate this technique into your workflow.
