In this video walkthrough, I want to show you some advanced lighting techniques
The example I’m using is my artwork “Beneath the Tulips”, which you can see below. With lighting, each image is somewhat different: here you have a strong backlight, creating strong highlights and shadows – the techniques shown are meant for that light situation and need to be adapted to fit the image you’re working on.
Please note that walkthroughs that use my art as example are not meant as an invitation to copy the artwork – I want to show you the techniques I use so you can put your own ideas on canvas instead.
If you would like to know something else or something is unclear, or.. please feel free to leave a comment so I can help you out!
Some of the techniques you will see in this tutorial:
- Adjustment Layers
- Colour Gradients
- Shadows & Highlights
- Lense Flare
- Finishing Touches
