Creative 3D Reflective Surfaces
Create Custom 3D Reflections Using 2D Images
So I found myself experimenting with the 3D reflections effects I covered in the last project and discovered some new uses for this technique. In this project we will take a single photo and then create a seemingly realistic reflective scene using just 3D in Photoshop. Photographers may even find how useful Photoshop 3D can be in creating reflective elements that would otherwise be a nightmare to shoot in a studio. The best part is once you have the 3D scene built you can simply swap out the image for a new image. I have a bonus video full of tips on how to be creative with the newly created 3D template.
What you will learn:
• Create 3D scene using 2D images
• Add Creative Reflection Effects
• Lighting & Camera Settings
• Additional Bonus Tips
• and much more!
