Hey Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by.

I’ve another video to share with you today and in this one I want to show you a couple of really cool lighting effects.

As the software I use develops so does my workflow and I’m always looking for new ways that I can apply effects / techniques, and this is certainly the case since the introduction of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC.

In this video I’ll show you an alternative way to apply a technique that I love and call “The Never Ending Lighting Rig” and a technique for adding multi coloured Stage Lighting; PLUS how to do all that using one filter AND non destructively.

So does this mean that the ways I used to do things are no longer valid? Not at all in fact far from it…this is just another tool in my Retouching Tool Box that I can turn to. However if it’s a new way to apply and effect / technique AND it’s non destructive then that’s a real bonus!

•Note: In the video I first of all show you how I ‘used’ to apply the effect and then I show you my new way…

As always if you have any questions or comments then please do make use of the comments section below or email me direct to

In the mean time though, have a great day and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
