I’m Shiv Pratap Singh and I welcome you to another tutorial by me at LTY.
With latest technologies available, 3D movies seems to be a part of our lives but they had been around much before 1950s. Even before we had most of currently famous video editing software.
We will recreate the look of Classic 3D movies from Retro era of 1950s by adding Red and Cyan 3D effect to the image in Photoshop.
Again, as I had always focussed on selecting a ‘Good’ for your work. I would again recommend to search for some good close-up face shots for this tutorial and it’ll be best if the model in the pic would be over-expressing an emotional.
As in retro era, compared to today, movie actors as well as people used to over-express their feelings. Now-a-days we barely express our emotions on our face. Yet some people complain that new actors act with a flat-face. I guess they haven’t seen mirror… 😛
Jokes apart, the image below have been selected by me for this tutorial.
