Light People - Photoshop Contest [29 entries]

Rescue Light Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

Take any picture of a person and give this person special light effects. For example, you could add some halo, have electricity bolts come out of the hands, add one or more flares around the body, etc...

To give some examples:
- Example 1
- Example 2
- Example 3

As you can see from these example, your light effect doesn't have to be attached to the person, but the person must have some interaction with it (either creating the light, or emmitting it.) Just "shining" a light on the person will be considered off-theme.

A few good tutorials which you can use to achieve this (and use your interpretation of it) can be found here:
- Adding light streaks to a photo...
- How to create light beams...
- Motion spotlight photo effect...
- How to create amazing light effects...
- Grungy style artwork with great light effects...
- Glowing light strokes... (video)

Good luck!
