TUTORIALS - 5 TRICKS AND TECHNIQUES FOR FORESTS & WATERFALLS
People often ask me how I get that nice light above waterfalls or how I make moss look so lush and green. In this video, I share those techniques, along with a few others! You will learn how to:
Create glow above waterfalls and paint in waterfall mist
Paint depth into forest scenes, even those without fog
Manipulate water to bring out the details and emphasize your leading lines
Bring moss and ferns to life
Remove distracting elements from your images
For each technique, I demonstrate it on at least two different images so that you get a better idea of how to apply them in different lighting conditions. If you're unfamiliar with luminosity masks, I also teach you how to create and manipulate them, as they're a core part of my workflow. No panels are required for this!
For all editing I use the latest version of Adobe Photoshop, however all of my methods will work with older versions.
