👈🏻 swipe for BTS -
On my first try using blaster effects last week, I added light reflections on the trooper using Photoshop. It was fun to play around with, but - always preferring the look of practical effects - for this one I used my "poor man's lumecube"; an LED work-light inside an orange plastic bag, which I shone directly on the subject trooper (before adding the blaster effects later) and I was much happier with the results here.
Also, after setting up the scene it became cloudy and I wasn't getting enough light. I had parked close by so I used an old, reflective car windshield protector to help brighten things up.
A little bit of @atmosphereaerosol
and 'hey presto'..
It's nothing you haven't seen before on a bazillion other bts posts and anyone can do it, but a few folks have asked so I thought I'd share how I got the shot. Photoshop isn't required either, there's lots of apps out there.
