Here's one I don't believe we have ever done.

The Orton Effect

It would have to be advanced, or higher due to the use of more than one exposure.

oh, at first I thought you meant the Orton Effect.

Sounds somewhat similar to the description of how unsharp mask originated in the film era.
12/25/2014 04:55:03 PM · #4
I'd like to have a go at that.

I thnk I inadevertantly used a variation on that technique in the Dog challenge a while ago ...

sounds like a good one, and new idea here!

I've used the Orton Effect in a few pictures previously and always liked it

the wish came true..

So I am understanding this as HDR is that correct?

I really like this idea and I think this will be a fun one to do! Great suggestion if I can just now understand it LOL

It simple: steps:

1. Open original image in PS
2. Copy the image in a new layer now go to edit menu and click on "Apply image" next popup screen select background in the first drop down and second dropdown screen
3. Now copy into new layer (Contrl+J, CMD+J)
4. Go to filter menu and click on Gaussian blur and keep the value such that it looks really blurry
5. select the blurry image and select "Multiply" and now play with opacity to get the effect.

I think of it as a special application of focus-stacking.

As i understand it it is similar to HDR with the added point being that one of the exposures is out of focus so when combined it gives a soft glow effect.
02/27/2015 08:52:22 AM · #15
pushing the clarity slider all the way down in lightroom gives the same effect.
02/27/2015 09:03:32 AM · #16
Could I do all three exposures or does it have to be just two?

Thank you!!

I didn't know the name of this, and I don't do the brightening of the image before blurring it. But many, many times I'll duplicate the current layer, blur at a guassian of about 40%, so a soft light blend and reduce the opacity. Sometimes I'll add another with the screen blend. It's kind of like glamour glow in color efex pro.

what the general said: focus stacking. since I don't athleticise in pp, I do this with my double exposures. sometimes. rarely. once or twice. needs a tripod. stunning, though.
02/27/2015 04:31:26 PM · #20
I didn't know the name either, but I played around with this using the double exposure function on my Olympus last year. I don't think that's legal in advanced though, so I'll have to try to do it with Photoshop. Hope I find time.
02/27/2015 04:56:32 PM · #21
Yup, double exposure is not legal in Advanced.

But it can be shot as focus stacking and assembled later. Even manually if you don't enjoy PS gymnastics :)

I'm assuming we can't slightly nudge one exposure so the two exposures are not exactly aligned.
02/27/2015 05:10:32 PM · #23
that would be interesting, CP. I would love to do this thing, but in expert so I can play (double X).

You assume correctly.

One for expert then.
