You know those photos where you throw flour or pigments at models? I know you do, because we just featured some the other day. While those are a lot of fun to make, dealing with flour on the floor is definitely not an easy task. Benjamin von Wong who did this a few years back said it took a few hours to clean.
Well, we got smart and did it in Photoshop 🙂 Not as fun, but definitely faster and easier and no post-shoot-cleaning. We used premade dust from out dust II package which has a large collection of high res dust
The secret to using the dust files is to use Screen Blending mode for the dust layers so the “black” in the dust goes away and you are only left with hi-res flour texture.
I used three different dust files here, with the last one having some “punch” to it
