How to achieve photorealism in a photomanipulation
If you try to achieve a photo realistic look it`s important to understand some aspects related to photography. And considering the fact that we use photographic elements as a base in our artwork the following tips can also help you find the perfect stock images for your artworks. I have tried to illustrate these aspects using both photographs and photo manipulations.
