The Campsite - a Substance 3D and Photoshop Project
Recently, I started experimenting with Adobe Substance Stager, to create photo-realistic scenes using my own original photography and 3D models. Virtual Photography, if you will. While I am in the early days of my learning curve, I am enjoying the challenge.
In my first project, I focused on adding a couple of wooden rowboats and lifejackets to an early morning photo of the lake near my cottage. While I was pleased with the result. I felt the boats themselves looked a little too new, and I learned that to create that additional realism, I needed to learn how to use Substance Painter.
The goal of my second project was to tell a slightly different story - a campsite on the water. Again, I chose a sunrise photo as my background image (background plate). As you can see below, I've included a tent, a campfire, canoe and camp chairs.
