Painting With Light – Workshop – Photoshop

One of my workshops for EDM (Exploring Digital Media) was to explore working with layers and Painting with Light in Photoshop.

We did this by photographing a Motorbike in the studio using various lighting angels and keeping the camera in a fixed position.

Then in Photoshop the images were edited by layering the images and painting in from each image (layer) the parts that were correctly exposed.

This process is used because it is very difficult to get the correct lighting in just one shot.

This technique is used widely in Car Advertising.

And used the other images to paint in using the brush tool and

layer mask the different parts of the bike.
