Welcome back to another installment of For Your Viewing Pleasure where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.
Light leaks are a nice visual accessory that can be added to photos either during the shoot by stealthily placing sheer fabric or crystal in front of the lens, or post-production — via Photoshop or After Effects. Ofttimes, they are used in film as well, providing a handy transition edit to switch from scene to scene in MVs. When added tastefully, colored light leaks can add a soft vintage stylistic effect to one’s photos. Likewise, light leaks can mimic sun rays, making the subject appear more dramatic. Below are some photos taken from Korean fashion magazines, carefully utilizing the light leak effect.
