Use some source images, a downloaded 3D object, and Photoshop's tools to create a striking composition.
- Hi, my name is Uli Staiger. I'm a photographer, book author, and trainer for many years from Berlin Germany. For a few years I've been focused on a particular topic. The fascinating possibilities of 3D visualization. After having produced many videos and articles about imaging that combines photography and 3D, I would like to show you how to create cool image using Photoshop's 3D tools and working with a Wacom tablet. You'll start with a basic image that shows a submarine in a bathtub.
The angle of view is quite special so the easiest option to put a water tap in the image is to use a 3D tap. You'll learn how to place and how to light it. You'll also learn how to shape the object and give it a metal look. After the image is rendered, a few nice and really cool 2D techniques will help to create a stunning look. I hope the process of creating this image will inspire you. All the techniques shown can easily be used for your own projects.
