Adding a Radiance Filter in Topaz Studio 2

Camera: Canon EOS 70D

ISO: 100

Shutter Speed: 1/60 sec

Last night I was playing around with an image I photographed of Ashenbank Woods… I wanted to create a paint effect so edited the image in Photoshop and then from there sent the image to Topaz Studio 2.

I used the impression filter and one of the filters that I have rarely used is called Radiance. So I thought I would give it a whirl.

As you can see from the close up it gives a sort of light leak around the edges. In this image I like it… but I did tone it down a bit and didn’t use the default settings.

If you don’t own Topaz, you can always give it a free a trial.
