Inspired by a stunning photoset of Monica Bellucci and her daughter Deva Cassel for the cover of Vogue Italia’s July, we’ve made a tutorial of how to achieve the same dramatic effect for your photos. You will also find few new ideas for your mother-daughter photoset.


The effect made using Basic Color Filters and Motion Blur filter. To reproduce the example above:

  • Click on Effects
  • Choose “Filters
  • Select “Basic” collection snd choose DF4 filter.
  • Hit ✓ to Save
  • Return to the main menu and select “Blur” tool
  • Select “Motion Blur”
  • Choose best Radius and Angle parameter to get desired effect
  • Hit ✓ to Save

Another one idea is to apply same color tones to both photos, like this:
