For my last project I wanted to do a lot more with fire than I did (I only used a lighter). I all these cool ideas but couldn’t do them because I was not willing to set myself on fire for a grade. Anyways I found this really sweet tutorial (http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/photo-effects-tutorials/flaming-photo-manipulation/). As you can see with the pictures below you start with a normal picture of a person, and you can use the fire as a basis for the rest. Now this is not an easy technique and I couldn’t get it done for the project, but i do think it is something that’s really cool. Also it’s very time consuming but if you know what you’re doing it’s well worth it. It’s amazing how you can take a picture of someone on a bright sunny day and turn them into a fire breathing dragon. This is exactly what amazes me about photoshop I love how you can take normal things and manipulate them into totally new and unthinkable things. The reason why I chose to do this blog on fire techniques and not any of the other millions of different techniques is because when I was doing my project I was looking up different things to do on photoshop with fire and this tutorial popped up and after reading it I thought it was so awesome and I wish i had the skills and time to do this.
