I loved meeting Mary. It was the weekend of the big January snow! I was glad to be able to drive to her, the roads were pretty good. We had such fun in her home, photographing her glowing belly. Her drive way is on a hill, so I Put my emergency brake on when I parked. When I left, I reversed out and could not go anywhere in the slush! Mary’s husband and dad got me going, giving me a good push! But then her husband, ran down the road to tell me my back tires were not spinning. He asked me to look at my dash and see if it said something. Sure enough, I had left my emergency brake on. Sure can’t wait to see him again so he can tease me Im sure! Im such a ding dong!

Ive been a photographer for six years, and I have purchased many sets of actions. Some are just plain lousy and some really rock! The key is to not let them effect the skin tones and to not overdo them. Using them on a low opacity or playing with the layers can really add just the right touch to your images!

Nashville Child Photographer top ten best actions photoshop lightroom presets

So, without further ado, here are my top ten photoshop actions. From most favorite, or most used, to least. But all of them are great!

  1. I LOVE Florabella Actions!  She has tons of sets, and they are all so pretty. Even if you buy them all, each set is completely different. My favorite sets are the retouch set and the color play!
  2. I have had Get Totally Rad Actions Since the beginning of my career! and six years later, Im still using them! Yin and Yang are awesome for lightening and darkening quickly. I also love the sharpening action.
  3. Kelley Ryden & Tracey Raver have an action called The Kelley Ryden Dreamy Newborn Action. Ive been using it also for several years, not just for newborns! It has some pretty pink tones and brown tones, while decreasing red overall too.
  4. I also use Paint The Moon actions frequently. I love the color of these, they are so rich and dreamy!
  5. I can’t forget about Son Kissed Photography’s Newborn Actions! and yes, I use them on other clients besides newborns, but her actions are amazing for lessening jaundiced skin, purple skin, or really red skin.
  6. If you’ve seen my work, its obvious that I love color! The queen of color is My Four Hens! She sells some amazing actions that are so rich! There are some matte ones too!
  7. Oh So Posh has some really beautiful ones too, that are rich and can really add some pop of color to your images!
  8. If you love the look of Film, you can find some amazing Lightroom presets and photoshop actions from the folks over at VSCO!
  9. I love Erin Tole’s actions and her LR presets! My favorite is Her black and white LR preset called Sweet coconut:)
  10. Last, only because I JUST bought these – but so far Im in love! Sarah-beth Photography’s Actions are simple and rich!

 

I hope you enjoy these!
