I’m not fond of drama in real life but I do love a dramatic blended image… and high school sports.
Tried to make my own lightning at first, but decided that was too time consuming. Googled smoke and lightning brushes and downloaded some free brushes, installed them in Photoshop CC 2015. BOOM! …much easier.
Every image can use improvement and I think an action image would be a good candidate for a blend using these brushes.
A cold wind blows throughout the night, while snow fills the winter air. It’s warm inside my cozy home and I find myself drawn to images of dandelions basking in the warmth of the early summer sun.
Blend of three images: Grove of trees near my house, dandelions from my lawn last summer and maternity image captured in the studio with strong backlight. Watercolor filter, lens flare and lighting effects added with Photoshop CC.
Playing around with an edgy style of editing to give the impression of toughness.
Backlit with Canon 580 EX 2 flash. Front slightly filled with reflector. Reflection is real and not edited into the image, but I did blend another image with jersey on the subject. Edited with Photoshop CC 2015 HDR and added some texture to the edges.

My attempt at reproducing the effects of adding soft light as demonstrated in this Youtube tutorial:
After starting, stopping, starting, stopping, going back, replay, repeat, etc. I finally came to the end of the tutorial. My final result is not perfect, but I did learn some coloring effects that may come in handy in the future. You’re never too old to learn new things!
