Adobe Photoshop

It’s your time to shine! Tag your work with this month’s theme, #Ps_Glow , for a chance to be featured on our page.

Hi there, it’s Danny (@thelightninja)! I created this composite image using three of my own shots: a foreground image, a sunset, and a Milky Way panorama. Swipe through my #Ps_Swipe tutorial to see how I edited this image using Photoshop!
•
First, I removed the sky in the main foreground image. In the Channels Tab, I selected the blue channel for the greatest contrast. I selected Calculations > Multiply to create a new alpha layer and adjusted it a little more to better separate the sky and the foreground. Using the Magic Wand Tool, I selected the foreground and masked the sky out of the foreground of the RGB layer.
•
I masked the clouds using the same technique as the foreground, using the red channel this time. I wanted to move the top of the cloud formation, so I created a copy of the cloud layer (Ctr-J) and used a black brush on the mask to remove the bottom of the clouds. Next, I created a new layer above the main cloud layer. I used the Clone Stamp Tool (S) with a cloud-shaped brush, selected Current & Below, and covered some of the bare areas with portions of the clouds.
•
Next, I blended the layers. The trick with these images is to edit areas of the photo selectively using layer masks. There are two ways to do this: (1) you can apply a setting, such as Hue/Saturation, and paint areas you don’t want the Hue/Saturation applied to with a black brush, or (2) you can invert the mask to black (Ctr+I) and use a white brush to paint in the adjustment layer. Using both of these techniques with several adjustment layers, I brought up the shadows.
•
Then, I used a brush shaped like a light beam to replace the original flashlight beam. I also added an artificial sunrise using a soft brush. For the color, I selected a tone similar to the color of the clouds. I then added a custom vignette using a large, soft black brush with a low opacity and fill. I added a global Curves layer, which helped blend all of the elements together. Lastly, I added a shooting star (that I previously made in @Photoshop) using the blend mode Screen.
•
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, and I can’t wait to see what you create!

Hey! It’s @thinklumi again, wrapping up the week! If you’ve been following my work, you know that I love triangles. They are the simplest geometric form, and I love the visceral effect they can have on a viewer. This piece is about the feeling of being connected to the infinite. It also features night and nature imagery, two things I absolutely adore.

Hi everyone, @thinklumi here. Since I was a small child, I have always been enthralled by the universe. For this piece, I wanted to create my take on experiencing the wonders of the cosmos and getting lost in space. Do you like the rainbow glow?

@thinklumi here. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated by what lies beyond Earth in space. As an adult, I never lost that sense of wonder and awe for the cosmos. I often explore space-related themes in my Photoshop work. To me, astronauts are a symbol of exploration, both of the unknown worlds and the worlds within ourselves. I find them very inspiring in my endless pursuit of understanding.

Hey there, it’s @thinklumi! Throughout school (and beyond), I learned about classical philosophy and art, which has been a huge source of inspiration for me. For this piece, I asked myself what a 21st century take on a classical statue might look like and how I might combine my classical influences with my current taste. This image was the result.

Greetings! @thinklumi here. I love combining nature imagery with elements of light and surrealism. You’ll find a kind of luminous glow permeates my work. That’s why I call myself Lumi. I composite my work in Photoshop because it enables me to easily combine the best parts of many different images into one. This image combines my love for night scenes with Icelandic imagery.
