The Dark Side

I’ve been experimenting with some new (to me) Photoshop techniques which are a departure from my usual style- if I indeed have a style. No textures, more obvious textures, frames, and now this:

  4. Nice! I love the black background. And the first shot looks like Glow, too. They look like they’re lit from within.
