Hey Folks,

How’s it going?

Well it’s Thursday again which means the latest episode (the first of 2014) of my weekly Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom Podcast / Show is now online!

This week I give you a look at a personal project I’m working on and show you how to create realistic shadows and lighting.

Hope you like it.

As always if you have any questions/comments please feel free to drop me a line to or make use of the comments section below.

In the mean time though I’d really appreciate the support if you’d let others know about this video, my YouTube channel & iTunes Podcast so they too can check out all the FREE content I post each and every week.

Thanks for looking in and I’ll catch you tomorrow,

    I always struggled with this Glyn. Big thanks for the methods and technique. I’m going to work more on this. Hope the Mrs. and yourself have the very best year ever in 2014. I hope to run into you someplace in the world this year. Cheers!

    @7min you can also accomplish that by creating a new blank layer and going image>apply image.

    Nice tutorial! Have you ever heard of Photoshop Actions? It allows you to “record” the steps of a tutorial and save it as a single Photoshop Action file (.atn), which you can load up later to perform the same steps in a different image with a single click of a button!

    This allows you to re-create complex effects such as 3d effects, shade filtering, etc. with very minimal effort. On my website, I have a hand-picked collection of free Photoshop Actions, categorized for easy finding, as well as a full tutorial on how to install and use Photoshop Actions. Have a browse: Free Photoshop Actions
