Walk into most professional photographer’s studios and you’ll be confronted with truckloads of lighting equipment. To the average hobby photographer it’s enough to make your mind boggle – and for your stomach to turn as you think about the cost of it all. Most of us can’t afford a full lighting rig – however what if there was a way to experiment with the type of lighting gear that pro photographers use without spending too much money? In this post I’ve found 10 DIY Flash and Lighting Hacks that put some of these lighting techniques within the grasp of the rest of us. 1.

How to Create Intense Light Streaks in Photoshop This post was originally published in 2008 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. A couple of subscribers left their comment on a previous post that collated a range of inspiring graphic artwork from digital artists across the world. The commentors asked how the light stream effect on some of the pieces was created. I did a little research and picked up a couple of tips from similar tutorials to present a walkthrough on how to create intense light streaks flowing around an object or person. View Full Size Firstly find a subject to base the flowing light streams on. Reselect the object by CMD/CTRL + Click on the layer, go to Select > Feather and enter 1px. On a new layer draw a circular marquee and add a Gradient fading to black with a colour of your choice, here I've chosen a cool green. Open up some kind of texture and paste it into the document. Change the blending mode to Multiply to render the white areas of the texture transparent.

Browsing Textures on deviantART Make any digital image into a tattoo on a photo This is a quick and dirty way to superimpose just about any digital image so as to look like a tattoo on a photo. Aka- how to know that the tattoo you want to get won't look terrible in the spot you want to get it. I've personally done this for years for both friends and myself as a means for "previewing" tattoo ideas. You'd be surprised at the number of people who had never even considered it! It can also be done as a prank: I am currently awaiting my mother's response to my emailed pictures of the "new tattoo" that I supposedly got this week. It only takes a few minutes and is easily done by even the Photoshop novice! Tools:*Image editing software such as Photoshop or Gimp (I used Photoshop 7.0)*Have a digital camera or a photo of the subject you want to "tattoo"*Image to be superimposed as a tattoo

Create a magical rainbow color flame in Photoshop One of the things I’ve seen around quite a bit lately is a transparent rainbow gradient effect on a dark background. It seems to me that flashy transparent gradients are in these days. They make me think about magic. Today I’ll show you how you can create a magical rainbow color flame. OK, maybe I’m using too many words in a row here, but it’s the best I can do to describe this. I should tell you upfront that for this tutorial basic knowledge of Photoshop is needed. Draw smoky lines First we start with the creation of the smoky lines by using the Pen tool. Double click on the right on one of the layers to open the Layer Styles. Add a cold gradient color flame First we'll create a rainbow gradient preset. Create a new layer, select the Elliptical Marquee tool and drag a circular selection (hold down shift while dragging) towards the bottom of the smoky lines. Touch up the flame using the Smudge tool If all goes well your gradient should look more or less as in the image below. My end result

CSS3 Patterns Gallery Browser support The patterns themselves should work on Firefox 3.6+, Chrome, Safari 5.1, Opera 11.10+ and IE10+. However, implementation limitations might cause some of them to not be displayed correctly even on those browsers (for example at the time of writing, Gecko is quite buggy with radial gradients). Also, this gallery won’t work in Firefox 3.6 and IE10, even though they support gradients, due to a JavaScript limitation.
