In this Photoshop Tutorial we will create a nature inspired, out of bond photo effect. With this one we will use photoshop tools such as transforming, manipulation, retouching, changing color, layer style and brushes.
Drag waterfall picture into our project. First hit Cmd/Ctrl+T to transform it:
Then click Warp modes:
Stretch it and resize it:
Add Layer Mask with soft black brush to make the thumb visible:
Duplicate waterfall layer. Choose under layer, press Cmd/Ctrl+U to open Hue/Saturation window. Reduce Lightness to -100:
Add Layer Mask to eraser the thumb and move it down as shown below:
Lower Opacity to 20% and apply Gaussian Blur with 4 px we have its shadow:
Create a new layer on the top. Use soft brush, color #343232 to make shadow for hand on waterfall picture:
Create a new layer, use water brush, number 792 to draw on waterfall picture:
Use Distort tool like in step 11 to transform this water:
Duplicate this layer, Flip it Horizontal and distort it as shown below: (you can erase uneccessary part in your own idea):
Create 3 layers, continue with water brushes, number 680, 729, 1552 to create water flowing from waterfall onto desert:
To make water look more realistic and more visible, apply Bevel and Emboss effect for all water brushes layers:
To create water flowing spilling on desert, make a new layer and use water brushes, number 421, 2304, 1878, 2178, 792 to paint on desert as the screenshot below shows:
In this last step we will make the a part of desert soaked by water. Create a new layer under water brushes layers, set to Multipy 100%. Continue with water brushes but with color #885809 to paint under the part in step 16.
