Now I will tell you how to create lightning near the model. This is a very interesting effect, which is created by Photoshop. Hold down Opt/Alt key and click on "Create a new layer" icon. Change Blending mode to "Screen", reduce Opacity to 25%, set to default foreground/background colors (D) and go to Filter > Render > Clouds. With Free Transform Tool (Cmd/Ctrl + T or Edit > Free Transform) reduce the size to a small spot.

Duplicate this layer (Cmd/Ctrl + J or Layer > Duplicate layer...) and move it to the opposite side near the hand model. Merge there two layers into one (Cmd/Ctrl + E or Layer > Merge Layers). Hide all by using inverted layer mask (hold Opt/Alt and click on "Add a layer mask" icon or go to Layer > Layer Mask > Hide All). With soft round brush restore clouds near hands. Try to hide layer edges. This will be the basis of lightning.

  2. I'm new to photoshop and mentioned in step 10 I'm supposed to look for a brush spot thumbnail, but I don't know what or where it is.

    1. Go to the Image > Mode menu and check if your image is in RGB mode and 8-bits/channel color.
