This week’s technique shows how to create a lake and add a realistic reflection in Adobe Photoshop.
Bert has been creating something out of nothing for decades—and this week is no different. Starting out with a simple lakeless landscape photo, he adds a layer with a blue fill to create a lake. Next, by duplicating a portion of the landscape and transforming it, he’s able to create a realistic reflection with a few passes of a low-opacity brush. Finally, to complete the effect, he runs through a series of filters to create ripples and waves on the newly created lake.
