Dreamy light effect gives us a fantastic sense. Most of
this effect from using blur filter but with a bit of creativity they
can be more different and specific. I will share with you the ways i
often do that kind of pic and you can apply to your pics with your own
The first way - Fantastic mist
This way is to make fantastic effect with focus on dreamy light and creating areas of brightness . It's often used for the nature, forest, river, field... Here is the stock:
1. Duplicate your base or Ctrl+J. Then go to Filter-Gassian blur
and set it to 5px. Set this layer to Lighten 100%. We can see the
scenery is covered by a mist.
2. A new channel mixer (Layer-New adjustment layer-Channel Mixer)
Red: 90,-6,-10,0 Green:0,100,0,0 Blue:30,20,162,0
Set this adjustment layer to Screen 100%
3. New Curves layer , set like the pic below:
Pay attention to the Curve and the
change on the pic. I want to focus on the light in the middle of pic
and set the different brightness on two sides so i choose this curve.
It's a suggestion for you to create the fit curve for your pic.
Here is result:
And another result after adjusting color:
I will introduce you different ways next time. Good luck !
