This manipulation tutorial is a bit more advanced and will walk you through many manipulation techniques such as masking using calculations, working with smart objects, layer masks and using blend modes and adjustments to create beautiful light effects.
The main techniques used here are the same as on my other tutorials but I will also show you how to create realistic depth of field in Photoshop, how to create a shatter effect using brushes and how I got that cinematic effect on the final result.
Valentine’s day is around the corner so I thought it would be nice to make something related to that. This is a manipulation tutorial that’s suitable for beginners and advanced Photoshop users alike. There are only a few stock images used to make this so it’s easier for me to explain and for you to reproduce. Have fun.
