Use this Photoshop action to easily and quickly edit your photos
Lighting is a very important factor in the work of Carles Marsal (@carlesmarsal). The images he creates are made up of bits and pieces of other imagery, therefore taking into account light and the direction of shadows is vital to the final results. No matter how fanciful and unrealistic the subject may be, the lighting must be realistic.
After perfecting his process and working with countless photos, Marsal has automated parts of his techniques and encapsulated them into a Photoshop action that helps him organize layers of light and shadow and create magical photos.
