Give your im­age a wet look

Practical Photography (UK) - - Photoshop Geniius -

Adding a splash of wa­ter around your model’s clean­ing cloths or a jet of wa­ter com­ing out of a spray bot­tle will add an ex­tra level of de­tail. In your Lay­ers panel, click on the Back­ground Layer and then go to Layer>New>Layer. You can call this ‘Wet Layer’. To add a glossy sheen to an area that’s be­ing buffed, click the Brush Tool from the Tool­box and hit D fol­lowed by X for a white Fore­ground Color. Then, with a Soft Brush and low Opac­ity of 10%, paint over the area and change the blend­ing mode of this Layer to Soft Light. You can also re­duce the Layer Opac­ity to get the ef­fect just right. For the wa­ter spray, it’s ex­actly the same tech­nique, ex­cept you need to choose a Wet Me­dia Brush to cre­ate the spray il­lu­sion.
