What you'll be creating
I love to experiment with abstract rendering. Their abstract forms, can achieve amazing visual effects. I created this picture with ideas broke stereotypes for today's trends. I'll start the lesson by creating a background and model. We will work with layer masks, and adjustment layers. Then proceed to the effects. In this part I will tell you about the creation of luminous lines in the background will create a cluster of lightning and police tape. At the end I added the details, effects, and a bit of work with color. In this tutorial we will use the filter "Tilt Shift" which is the only in Photoshop CC. You need to download all attachment links, a little logic, a good mood and be sure to have Photoshop beginning with CS version.

Create a new document via Cmd/Ctrl + N or File > New at 2400 pixels wide and 3000 pixels height, resolution 300 Pixels/Inch.
Place concrete texture into working document via File > Place.../Place Embedded. In Free Transform mode (Cmd/Ctrl +T or Edit > Free Transform) rotate it on 90 degrees and slightly reduce it's size. Hit Enter/Return to apply changes.
Duplicate this layer (Cmd/Ctrl + J or Layer > Duplicate layer...) and go to Edit > Transform > Rotate on 180 degrees. Reduce layer Fill to 50%. It's a little to soften the texture and will not distract the viewer from the details.
Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid color... or use "Create new fill or adjustment layer" at the bottom of Layer Panel. Set Mode to "Overlay" and color to black (#000000). Reduce Fill to 40%.
Create another one gradient fill layer (Layer > New Fill Layer > Gradient...). Set default Black & White gradient, Style: Radial, Scale: 150%, check "Reverse". Change layer blending mode to "Soft Light". It will be our focus point. We will direct the viewer's attention on the center of the image.
