Welcome to Manip Academy 2.0!
What is it about?
Manip Academy is about learning and sharing! Much like in a real school, the idea of this project is to teach you valuable Photoshop tricks on a regular basis.

Depth effect
When you create a scene and it has details in the background, it is very important you remember to keep the depth, in this way you will get a more realistic result. The details in the foreground will have more contrast in comparison to the details on the background, then the scene in the background will have less contrast, "a white or blurred appearance".
Look at some examples to better understand what I'm trying to explain:

Manip Academy: Creating mood/atmosphere with light
Light is one of my most favourite things to play with when photomanipulating. It is a very useful thing that helps to bring mood to the image and sometimes can even play a role in giving more focus to your subject or whatever you want to highlight.  I use it every time, however it's not always obvious, but it makes the difference.
Atmospheric light is particularly useful if you want to add detail without overloading your work with different objects. Because it allows you to create highlights and bring out the things you want to, while keeping the rest subtle. It also helps to blend everything in seamlessly and gives the image more depth.
I'm going to give out a few tips that help me in playing with this and getting some interesting results.

The trick in creating the mood and atmosphere with light is knowing the surroundings in your work and having an image of the light source.  From there
