Group Info

A group for dark digital work :D This means digitally edited traditional work of any sort, as well. We just don't like raw images here, too eyesore-ish.

Submit to the closest-appropriate folder. "Dark Fantasy" would be the catch-all.
Featured folder is where you showcase two or three of your best works. Let me know and we can replace some of the ones you might have in there when you get better ^_^
No -raw- photography (this rule does not apply to the stock folder!)
Lit. and edited photography welcome
Anything digitally altered and dark in nature/concept/execution is very welcome here
Dems the rules.

Post is here:…

Don't worry, I'm not stupid enough to send you guys viruses :/  

I don't know why people complain when I post non-da links... I'm not an idiot and wouldn't send you somewhere unsafe.

If your model has long hair billowing in the wind and has no motion blur to it, then buckets of blurry rain seems very out of place.
People always talk about my lighting and to be honest I owe most of it to layer styles.

- Inner Shadow
- Gradient Overlay
- Bevel and Emboss
- Color Overlay

Inner Shadow:

Gradient Overlay
One of my favorites.  It can always help improve dramatic lighting when set to overlay, soft light, or even just normal, with the opacity somewhere under 50%.

Bevel and Emboss:
Increase the Size slider for best effect, and keep the opacity low.  It helps on some things, but not everything.

Color Overlay:
A really good way to darken your subject.  Change the color to black and lower the opacity.

All of these combined with the usual lighting effects usually does it for me... :D
