Advanced Lighting Photomanipulation Tutorial


I’m going to show you how I did the lighting for Beneath the Tulips – keep in mind that while most of my steps are often similar no matter what image I’m using, not everything is applicable in other lighting situations. This is an advanced tutorial, so I will not be fussing over every button I press. There are some captions on the right side to help you with the main points, but other than that I will just assume you know your way around Photoshop and if you hear or see something unfamiliar know how to search for it — if you really can’t find anything, feel free to ask, of course! Finally, I just hope you’re going to get something out of this and will leave a comment to let me know what you think
