Create a wall of light in Photoshop

Today you will learn how to create epic photo effects in less than a minute! Check out this brief lesson.

Make your photos stand out with this effect. It is also great for rock stars, athletes and many others! In this video, I will show you how to create a glowing wall of lights from scratch using a single light bulb and simple brushes in Photoshop.

Look at the entire process of creating a job, and you will see all the details that you need to complete this lesson. And also go to the GraphicRiver website to download other amazing brushes.

Note: in the source of the lesson the author used paid materials. In the archive you will find an alternative version of the materials for the lesson.

Step 1

Create a new document with a resolution of 850 x 600 pixels.

Use the tool Paint bucket tool (Fill) (G) to fill the background with a dark brown color # 1b120f.

Now use the tool Elliptical Marquee Tool (Oval selection area) (M) to highlight the light bulb image. Copy and paste it into the document and select the desired size using the tool Free transform tool (Free Transformation) (Control-T).

Duplicate (Control-J) this layer several times to make one row of bulbs, and then merge all the layers. Make a few more rows of duplicated bulbs using the same process until you have a whole wall of bulbs.

Drain all layers of lamps in one layer and set the blending mode to Divide (Divide).

Step 2

Now add some highlights. Create a new layer and use a soft round brush, set the hardness to 20% and paint bright yellow (# fffad3) highlights on the lamps. Then reduce Opacity (opacity) brush up to 50% to make multiple lamps less bright.

Set the layer blending mode to highlight Linear dodge (Linear Dodge). Then create another new layer and set the blending mode to Pin light (Spot light) to illuminate the glare a little more. For this step, use a large, soft round brush.

Step 3

Then paint a few lamps using a set of brushes with highlights, and add any object. Here I used an American football player, because the lighting of his silhouette corresponds to our effect.

Create new layers below and above the object to draw the yellowish lighting behind the football player, as well as on top of his silhouette, which will fit our scene. And do not forget to add more highlights!

Here is the final result.
