Smoke and the water

While VFX software has been used and sometimes overused in film-making for several years now, these same software tools can also be used to create amazing visual effects for furniture, such as steam rising from a bathtub or water flowing from a tap.

The usual approach for lighting in 3D visualization involves studying the lights first, using ambient occlusion maps to check if the shadows provide the correct depth to the image.

After achieving the correct light balance, the next step is to apply textures and maps developed for PBR (physically based rendering).
