    Is it strange to anyone else that three of these use Abduzeedo’s bokeh effect? http://abduzeedo.com/awesome-digital-bokeh-effect-photoshop

  • nice list thanks..

  • Stephen Coley, May 4, 2009

    I’m suggesting Benjamin Reid’s personal site for this list. If you haven’t seen it, go check it out. Great lighting technique on the sidebar.

    Mack,
    Yes, that bokeh effect is pretty common since the Abduzeedo tutorial. I see a lot of graphics and background images for sales using the same effect as well.

    Stephen,
    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll keep it in mind for part 3.

    “Let there be light!” A very stimulating list, indeed. Even though there were some repetitions, the list had a handful of very fresh ideas to offer. Dying to put a few of them to test right away. Thanks for sharing.
