Video – Surreal Edgy Effect

This week I’m changing it up a little and showing a creative technique that I’ve seen become very popular lately. It’s something that you’d typically create in Photoshop (and maybe with a plug-in) but you can come up with some very cool results right here in Lightroom. It’s creative… it’s edgy… and it almost has a surreal quality to it. All that aside, I just think it looks cool on some photos so I decided to see how far I could push Lightroom toward creating the style. Have fun with it!
