Drawing Polaroid in Photoshop

In this tutorial we will create a Polaroid camera.

Step 1: Top
Create a new document of 600×700 px. Then draw a rounded rectangle with the color # dbd3co.

Step 2. We press CTRL + T, to activate the transformation. Right click on the object and select Perspective (Perspective). Slightly expand the bottom.

Step 3. Add layer styles.

Step 4. Hold down the key CTRL and click on the thumbnail of the rectangle layer to load its selection. Move the selection up 1 pixel. Holding CTRL + ALT, click the layer thumbnail again. The result is a 1 pixel wide selection.

Step 5. Create a new layer and fill the selection with white. Decrease Opacity (Opacity) layer up to 60%. Below is the result before and after adding a narrow line.

Step 6. Repeat the previous step, only this time for the bottom. Fill the selection with black.

Step 7: The middle part. We use Pen tool (Pen) (P) to create the part shown below. Adding Layer Styles Inner glow (Internal glow) and Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

Step 8. Duplicate (CTRL + J) the created part. We have it for the original. We use Arrow tool (Arrow) (A) to move the upper nodules just above. Change the shape color to # 908a7a.

Step 9. Now we need to make the shape a little darker and add volume. Create a new layer. Convert it to a clipping mask by clicking CTRL + ALT + G. Then we draw in black at the top of the shape.

Step 10. Create a new layer. Activate Brush tool (Brush) (B), set Hardness (Hardness) at 0%. Draw a translucent white line.

Step 31. Next, create a form in the form of a ring. To do this, draw an ordinary circle, duplicate the contour and reduce it. Then set the mode to Subtract from path area (Subtract from the figure area). Adding Layer Styles Bevel Emboss (Chamfer and Emboss) and Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlap).

Step 32 Continue to work on the inside of the lens. You must understand that all these effects are created using simple circles using layer styles.

Step 33 Draw a small circle again. Adding Layer Styles Bevel Emboss (Chamfer and Emboss) and Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

Step 34 Duplicate (CTRL + J) the part we created. Reduce it by 2%. Remove existing layer styles and apply Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

Step 35 Duplicate (CTRL + J) the two circles created in step 32-34. Reduce them.
