Re: Cool lighting effect, any ideas how was it don

I know there's probably a billion ways to do the same thing in photoshop, but if it were me trying to replicate this, I would do it thusly:

Start with a curves adjustment layer, jack up the brightness on it way up....then I'd add a curve adj layer that warms up the color (+red and yellow), and then I'd put them in a layer set folder. I'd put a mask over that, and with a soft airbrush, I'd brush in the shape of the light beam.
Then I'd add a layer of white over that, set it at like 10% opacity, and bust out a soft airbrush with 'shape dynamics' and 'other dynamics' set for 'pen pressure'(wacom tablet obviously), and I'd illustrate some smoke over the light beams.
