Sometimes a photo just needs a little somethin' extra. An explosion here, some embers there, or an outer space background can make all the difference.

This week, we're giving the spotlight to photographers that like to turn it up a notch. To the Photoshop and Lightroom wizards, this one's for you!

Get ready to 'ooh' and 'ahh' as you scroll on to check out the special effects work of Nick, Jose and Jason.

Name: Nick
Location: Colorado, US
Inspiration: The lighting style and pose were inspired by film directors Guillermo Del Toro and Zack Snyder. Guillermo has an amazing way of using colors in his movies that create a signature style of his own.  His work in Pacific Rim has been my go-to.  As for Zack, I probably watched BvS way too much lol, but the idea came from the scene at the end when Batman and Wonder Woman stand over Superman's body. The overall concept was inspired by the current state of my life.  Thanks to my faith, I believe God armors me with the ability to walk through fire and embers in order to overcome the chaos or obstacles along the way.  This figure has such epic details and quality that I'm able to capture this feeling in combination of lighting and digital painting for effects.

Name: Jose
Location: Mexico
Inspiration: What inspired me in the photo was the original trailer when they announced this Krig and I thought of recreating something similar as if the Gomez casino was missing from his list to hunt and he goes for it

Name: Jason
Location: New, Mexico, US
Inspiration: I wanted to showcase Miguel’s gliding abilities so I posed him as if he just jumped off one of the many skyscrapers that line the streets of Nueva York! The fabric of the suit really catches the light just right! He’s definitely one of my favorite figures!
