How To Create Realistic Steam in Photoshop | Brian Rodgers Jr. | Digital Art That Rocks™

Brian Rodgers Jr. of Digital Art That Rocks™ shows you how to create realistic looking steam from scratch, right inside of Photoshop CC! His unique approach will have you creating realistic steam in no time!

As a retoucher, one of the things that I love about Photoshop is the ability to create things from scratch. Recently I was shooting a commercial product assignment and I had a cup of coffee in the background as a prop. It really added to the image, but it was by no means the focal point of the image. By the time I had everything right where I wanted it on set, the coffee was cold and no longer had real steam. Instead of brewing more coffee, as I had drank enough already that day, I decided it would be best to create it in Photoshop. I tried a few a few things first before ultimately coming up with a really cool and repeatable technique. I tried creating some custom brushes, and I got some pretty good results, but it was taking way too long to do it with the brush tool. So after about 10 minutes of experimenting, I developed a really cool technique that allows you to create realistic looking steam in just minutes! It utilizes one of Photoshop CC's new features. Check out the video to see how it works!

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
— Steve Jobs

I don't typically get all philosophical on my blog, but I just wanted to simply say, find something in life that you love doing, and just go for it! Put your heart and soul into it. Could you imagine, if everyone in the world could do what they love for a living, the world would be a much better place.

If you're in a job right now, dreaming of bigger things, go out and make your dreams a reality! Start today! You can't wait for things to happen, you have to make things happen. It's going to take some time, maybe even years. It's going to be a lot of hard work to get there. Through struggle comes strength.

This is just me having fun testing some lighting before photographing some executive portraits on location. Did you know that smiles are contagious? I kid you not, when you smile, other people smile, imagine that...the camera looks both ways
