In this lighting Photoshop tutorial, I'll show you how to create a point effect behind an object in Photoshop. Which will create a backdrop lighting effect for your images.

  1. Create a blank canvas.
  2. Add your object image as a new layer.
  3. We’re going to apply the Lighting Effects filter.
  4. go to Filter > Render > Lighting Effects and select “Point” from the Style menu.
  5. Adjust the settings to your liking in the effect properties section, such as Intensity, Ambience and Focus.
  6. All done, you can now add backdrop lighting to your images.

We can add a mask to the copy picture layer to make the effect look more real. We can hide the point-light effect in some parts of the picture. Here are the steps we need to take:

  • Click on the layer mask icon at the bottom of the Layers panel.
  • When you select the Brush tool, you can hide the point light effect by painting over it with black paint.
  • Adjust the opacity and softness of the brush to achieve the desired effect.
