Use REAL Shadows for Realistic Compositing! – Photoshop Tutorial

1 min read

Learn how to easily extract the shadows from the entire image to add absolute realism to your Photoshop composites! In this tutorial, we will use blend modes like Multiply and adjustments like Curves to apply, blend, and perfectly match the subject and shadows to the new background.

From selecting and masking the subject, creating shadows, and finally, color grading, we will cover various compositing concepts in Photoshop. I hope this video helps. Thank you so much for watching 🙂
