Have you ever wondered how specific photos just have that “look”? You know, the look that makes you say, “WOW! That Photo is INCREDIBLE! They must have a nice camera!”
Haha, truth be told, it’s never really the camera, is it?
I have found that many images that have that look draw me into specific areas of the photo to grab my attention. This is a DELIBERATE action!
There are many ways to grab the viewer’s attention, but today I will reveal my secrets for building a fabulous glow. I use this technique in nearly every one of my images, and I couldn’t live without it.
Some people call this the “Orton Effect,” but this is not really an Orton Effect because it uses a different process. I prefer to call it a glow or radiance effect. Enjoy and remember to experiment!
