Scene synthesis, a method of synthesizing a picture of a deep mountain waterfall scenery with PS

This chaptersynthesiscourseWe explained the synthesis method of deep mountain waterfall scene, mainly introduced some synthesis tips such as light processing, scene fusion and scene construction, which can not be missed by students who like synthesis.

Let’s take a look at the final effect:

The basic scenes we want to create include mountains, waterfalls and the sky.

Then, we will use the adjustment layer to adjust the scene elements. In addition, we need to integrate more elements into the scene.

Finally, we will create a light atmosphere, and the last adjustment layer.

Note: This tutorial uses Adobephotoshop CC 2014, Photoshop CS3 or higher can also be used together.

I How to build a basic scenario

  Step 1

Click File → New to create a new document. The settings are as follows:

  Step 2

Click File → Place to place the cliffpicturePlace in the lower right corner of the canvas.

  Step 3

Drag Image Mountain 1 below the cliff layer.

  Step 4

Click Layer → Layer Mask → Show All to add a layer mask to the cliff layer.

Select the brush tool (B), set the opacity to about 30%, and use the soft black round brush to smear the red part of the picture to make the cliff and Mountain 1 blend.

The effect is as follows:

  Step 5

You may notice that the source of the waterfall on the cliff layer is also covered, so we need the source effect to make the waterfall appear to fall from the cliff.

To do this, open the image Waterfall 1, and place it under the cliff layer, as shown in the following figure.

The best thing about this picture is that it is very similar to the waterfall of the cliff in the picture, which can be used to integrate the waterfall of the cliff and the scene.

Apply a layer mask to the layer, and then use the brush you used before to smear the part of Waterfall 1 beyond the top.

The effect is as follows:

  Step 6

As you can see, the area on the left of the canvas is still blank. Open the picture Mountain 2 and place it under the Mountain 1 layer.

The following figure shows the effect after hiding all other visible layers.

The effect is as follows:
