Set Design Overview
We are talking about set design, or I like to call it image design. And the reason why I'm sort of creating a distinction between set design and image design is because image design means that you could be designing an image from the ground up in Photoshop, for example but set design is really strictly on a set. So we're gonna talk about both of those things, compositing and image design, and set design so they're sort of different things, but really the point is that we're learning about how to create images from nothing and turn it into something hopefully beautiful or at least interesting or at least something noteworthy. That's what we're going to do right now, and I'm really excited about this because something I've been asked a lot about is color theory abd I've never studied color theory in any educational setting, I've never really looked at a color wheel before, so I don't know that I have a very formal education in color but I do have a lot of natural sensibilities when it co...
mes to color, and we're gonna try to work through those sensibilities to start, because I believe that color is one of the most important ways that we can create a certain feeling, a certain emotion, a certain look in an image and it's the most fun for me too. And when I say color, it could be no color. I don't just means images with lots of color or really happy pictures or really bold images, but any way that you want to use color, even if it's sucking it out of an image. That's totally okay too.
