Photoshop | How to Create Glowing Moon Effect

In this Photo manipulation tutorial we will see how to create this very popular photo effect where a person is holding moon or earth or any other planet.

The best thing is that i have tried to design this tutorial in a way that once you learn how to create moon effect, you can create pretty much any planet with little modification.

Process is also bit lengthy compare to most of my other effects but once you get a hand of it, it should be a lot faster to get done.

We will manipulate light, add shadows, turn day in to late evening and add lots of glow and sparkle effects all using just photoshop.

Don't get intimidated by the amount of layers or timing of the video,
there is also tons of masking but if you take you time and follow all steps carefully you might end up creating the effect better than me ;)

Thats pretty much it. I hope you learn something from this photoshop tutorial. If you have any questions or suggestions ask me in comment section below.

Have a good day :)
