“Blistering Glare”

Generally I prefer not to step in front of the camera. However, this late night idea never would have been born otherwise. The concept came to me after someone commented last week on a look I kept delivering. Their remark was actual half compliment ’n half inquiry. Fast forward to midnight yesterday, it’s quiet here, and I decided to play in PS. Which is rare -but a gift considering how much I enjoy the program. Luckily I can still move things around and generate effects. In the end it required only a single shot of myself followed by various Masking / Layer Modes to produce this. A combination of smoke brushes and “Liquify” helped also. Anyhow…fun.
