How to Create Shadows in Photoshop

Shadows made easy

Shadows help put the subject in a photoshopped composite. In this tutorial, I show you how to create a shadow and then manipulate it so it looks totally real.

Shadows can look detailed and difficult, but they are actually easy to create.

Usually shadows are sharp and dark near the subject and blurry and light the further away it gets. Using a few Photoshop filters and some masks, all this becomes really easy.

We learn to use the field blur, gradient tool and opacity to create realistic shadows in Photoshop.
