I first wrote about the Sabattier Effect about 9 years ago and since then have revisited the subject several times. This is not a rehash of the effect, if you want to learn about it just click on “Tutorials” in the menu bar above and you can get written and video instructions.
Every once in a while, I still apply the effect to different images. Just this afternoon I tried it and really liked the result I got. Below is both the “before” and “after”. Hope you enjoy!
