The technique consists of creating your lightbeam with the polygonal lasso tool, bluring it, making it transluscent and then fading it. It’s an easy 4-step process that will make your photo look heavenly.

I would strongly recommend the book Light, Science & Magic if you don’t already have it. You’ll learn all you need to know about the principles of light and become a better photographer because of that.

    I can hardly wait to try this with one of my High School Senior’s portraits! I have been wanting to play with the use of sun rays in the portraits I create and now I can do it with Photoshop. I happened across your website tonight as i was preparing a lecture. I wil come back again. I like your teaching style. Many Thanks!

    This tutorial is really good. I want to try it but can’t find a good photo like you edited. If it is possible can you give the link of the image?

    Hello Yanik,

    I just found your website and am loving it already, I am and probably always will be a “wanna be” photographer.

    You do a great job in explaining your steps in all of your tutorials and find it very easy to follow along.

    Thanks so much for all your effort you put into this.

    Regards,

    Todd
