My take on the Orton Effect... Picture of the Day

Sorry about my lack of posting, it's been a long week and I'm getting accustomed to working twelve hour shifts. Hopefully in the next few days I'll post something worth reading :)

The Before Shot.

The After shot.
Seeing Red (October 2006 Epijunky)

You may need to click through the image to see the effect more clearly. The Orton Effect is named after Photographer Michael Orton who basically sandwitched two images together, one in focus, one out of focus. The result being an slightly fuzzy, glowing type shot.

It's very easy to do with photoshop. If anyone is actually interested, I'll share the instructions.

Those are long shifts - make sure you get enough rest.
