  1. What I've done in the past is basically (For Fireflies): Pick Gradient tool Pick the one that goes from White to transparent Make it a Radial Gradient Edit the Gradient to the colors you want White to Yellow to Transparent, or add a red/orange at the end and then create small spots with it. Go to Blending option and play with the Size/Spread/Opacity For the magic sparkles You can pick a brush that looks like small splatters. Pick a while or yellow color and then adjust outer glow in Blending options. Hope that helps.
  2. Without a RAW file, it's pretty limited, but I came up with this:
  3. I think your pictures lack the proper lighting to create the "contrasty" look. The rest is just matte and color grading I think.
  4. If you google "Fog Overlay" there's tons of free options you can use. Would you mind if I tried a couple and reposted here?

    Damien, the PSD is no longer available. Any input on the method here?

    Question about files

    Oh boy...I went through that class twice...but I'm honestly drawing a blank. I remember really liking it, and being familiar with most of the methods/concepts...

    Question about files

    I'm not 100% on how just changing the Blending mode on a Levels layer that hasn't been adjusted causes a change though.

    Question about files

    Thanks. There was one that had a Levels layer on the whole picture (no mask), in Soft Light blending mode, but no adjustments made that was baffling me.
  12. If we have questions about certain layers in one of these can we ask here? I find that there's sometimes a Levels layer, and when I click to see what adjustments have been made, I can't seem to figure it out.

    Vintage look

    I know this is an old topic, but I was just curious, for my own learning purposes... Could you have maybe masked the car and made it a tad lighter then raised the saturation on it, and then another on all the red things (bowtie, suspender, wall) and done the same thing and THEN applied the process Damien provided?

    Editing Cold Scene

    If you're going for a colder feel in a photo, should you go with a cooler WB setting in RAW, or do the raw edits to the true tones and then deal with cooling it down in PS?
