Beam of Light

“The love of knowledge is a kind of madness.”  ~ C.S. Lewis

Yesterday I tinkered a little with Photoshop and it’s not a program I am eager to learn to use. Personally, I find it such a difficult program to understand even with all the hundreds of tutorials online that I can view.  It’s just not an activity I envision utilizing some of my free time doing. However, I can’t help being fascinated by some of the effects I see on pictures and wondering how it’s done.  

I might have mentioned in one of my past posts that I pretty much use PicMonkey to touch up photos.  It’s simple, easy and fast and truth be told I like instant gratification and on to the next thing.

Here are my results.  The cropped picture above was done strictly using PicMonkey and the two pictures below are the outcome of my lesson in inserting a beam of light into my photo using Photoshop.

The before.

The after.

I’m quite happy with the way it turned out that I just might play with it again. 🙂
