Water Trick for Photographers

Have you ever wondered how a photographer makes a scene in his or her studio that appears to include water? Sometime it might look like a pond or river of some sort. Well, there is actually a very creative DYI hack for that.

All you will need it:

  1. Aluminum foil
  2. Blue paint

Optional – A coating to put over the paint for shine

Step 1

Rolls out the aluminum on the surface you need to make look like it is some form of water and them cut it to that size.

Step 2

Put it down on a surface suitable to use for painting.

Step 3

Paint a light coating of blue paint over it not worrying if you don’t cover it completely. In fact, small areas of uncover space may be helpful for your scene.

Step 4

Wait until it dries.

Step 5 (Optional step)

Either add a layer of clear coating over it for glossy feel.

When completed you can put this in your scene and using the right settings and lighting, it will look like water.
