I find it helps to sometimes do more than one gradient. or a feathered selection, added with a wacom. it is however very depended on the image, lighter images is easyer as they will seem more likely to have flaire in them.

i've even used a lens flare to get that look before. just set it to screen and play with it till you get something you like.

Or just a very large white airbrush on a separate layer and adjust opacity and layer mode to taste.

Re: HELP: Fog & Fashion

I made a test. The thing is, as Lasse mentioned, that the lightening from start probably has to be right for creating this kind of effect. But this is what I manage to get after 15 minutes and a couple of layers (white gradients with opacity, solid brownish color set to multiply to simulate a shadow kind of effect, and a d&b together with a curves layer to create the halo light around her)

Gah! Now that I look at the images in my browser it just looks totaly washed out. Screw this! This was probably out of my league anyway!

Re: HELP: Fog & Fashion

i agree with vapour. this is one of my results, very subtle though. i used white large brush on colour layer and low opacity.
