a very simple method to get an ortin effect can be based on what mr. orton explains on his site (www.michaelortonphotography.com): duplicate the background, add some blur to the copy (gaussian blur or lens blur work fine) and set the opacity of the copy to about 50-60%; then apply a slight overexposure to the original background layer (usually 1/3 stop is enough).


take care,

It's a nice effect. I've created a macro that kind of does this.

Thank you for posting your macro! :)

 

It creates a nice effect as it is, & by playing around with the blend mode of the exposure adjustment layer afterwards, even more dramatic (or cheesy, depending on your tastes) variations are possible.
