Create a Stunning Product Shot Using Professional Lighting Effects
Today I’m going to teach you how to create some truly awesome lighting effects. Back when I was a Photoshop beginner I used to look at lighting effects like this and wonder how they could achieved. Quite simply they seemed out of my depth.
However, I’ll walk you through just how easy it is, with a bit of time and creativity. The techniques themselves aren’t overly complex. It’s essentially a combination of gradients, textures, masking, brushes, and adjustment layers. However, you’ll see in this tutorial how it’s the building up of these aspects which leads to great results. It’s not good slapping on a few lighting brushes and expecting your piece to really pop. You need to build up lots and lots of layers of effects, and make sure they these compliment each other, and are never overdone. Enjoy the tutorial!
