The photo below always stood out for me and remains one of my favorites. In my last blog post here I mentioned I wanted to try this method on a live action shot rather than a still from a video game.
This was taken a street away from the Bedford pub in Balham, just under a rail bridge in natural light. When I select a picture to edit, I am always drawn to something about it. In this case it was the contrast of the red hair against the white brickwork.
I immediately thought of white flames but decided to go with red flames in the end. Many, many effects were used on this edit, but I found if you use a lot of effects then they can soften the image a little. This this end I sharpened the face, hair and fire effect around the hair and hands.
Next one needs to be a cold version... after all winter is coming...
