Chapter 4. Special Effects

In this chapter I share some special effects that I regularly use in my own pictures.

I’m often asked how I create these effects and whether they come from using third-party plug-ins. The great thing is that they’re all created within Photoshop, and each one is quick and easy to produce.

Over the next few pages I’ll show you techniques I use for turning day into night, creating a cartoon/painterly effect, and making your own dust, debris, snow, and rain brushes. Plus, I show a quick and easy black and white conversion technique, and how to fake the wet look.
