Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting the shadow, part of Creating a Hallway Scene with Photoshop.
All the main elements in our hallway are now complete. …But the whole scene looks dull and flat, and that's because we haven't added the …lighting yet. It's a vital component of any Montage, …all the more so in this case, where we have two very visible light sources. …Let's make a new layer, and call it Shadow. …And as you can see it's right at the top of the Layer Stack. …Now we could simply paint shadows on here but as this is going to be such a shaded …scene, there's a better way to approach it.…
Let's fill this layer with a very dark gray. …We can sample that from our Swatches panel. …And that's filled. When we change the mode of this layer …from normal to hard light, we can just about see through it to the scene below. …And this will form the darkest part of our shadows. …Now, let's paint our light into here by adding a Layer Mask. …So we can go to Layer, Layer Mask and Reveal All.…
The first place we want to illuminate is obviously this window in the door. …So let's scroll down, find the door and load it as a selection. …
