Splash Dance

Splash Dance



Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks

There are just images that would have been almost impossible before Photoshop. Working with models and splashing liquids for photography would be impractical and lead to cold, damp and angry models. Trust me we don’t want that!

The cool effect in this image is the displacement maps. It is fairly easy to find splash images and place them on an image, but displacement maps allow the water image layers and the dancer layers interact with each other. See how the legs and shoes of the dancer are modified by the splashes. This makes the image work.
