As I have been distracted by being quite literally chained to my desk, I decided to return to outer space for a tutorial as I didn’t have an image in mind to start out with. It’s a variation on a theme I’ve already explored, only this time using a photograph of clouds rather than generating clouds using Photoshop filters.
I wanted a green nebula, but as you can see it doesn’t work quite as well as the blue. The advantage of this, however, is that I can there are plenty of stock photos of clouds or similar patterns that can be used to give the nebula a specific desired effect. Or, in a pinch, I can always go out and take my own cloud photos. Those taken during a lightning storm could yield interesting results.
