About the Image(s)

Premise: To show a cup of coffee, magically being made from beans, without water. Based on all those layered, floating sandwiches you see.

1.Photograph necessary images, table with empty coffee cup, filling coffee cup, empty coffee filter, arm and hand pouring beans and coffee beans (for background)(both whole and ground).

2. Create blank white layer, fill with cappuccino color.

3. Create new layer with image of ground coffee for background.

4. Create new layer with image of whole bean coffee.

5.Create new layer with image of table and empty coffee cup towards base of the canvas

6. Create a new layer with image of coffee flowing out of filter and coffee filling the cup

7. Create a new layer with image of arm, hand and coffee can in line with the filter so beans can fall into filter from the container.

8. Using a water splash brush, add several splashes of different sizes coming out of the cup.

That was a lot of work for just one cup of coffee! But you ended up with a great composit.   Posted: 09/05/2020 15:11:08
