Absolutely LOVE this action set. Kelly has done a fabulous job in her tutorial and putting this actions together. My Newborn sessions are taking on a new look and feel thanks to Kelly! Thank you so much from the depths of my heart. This actions is fantastic!
This is cool but I haven’t used it on anything large scale enough yet that using a fill layer set to “colour” blending mode and masking it onto the area I want to colour change hasn’t worked. Then again I also haven’t had a very specific colour in mind that I was wanting to change it to so we will see if it makes a big difference at the time when I do want to do that! But it certainly works as intended so if you don’t know how to colour change on your own this is definitely for you!
Can I give this a 12/10?? The only thing I would have liked included in this is a separate action for the “pop” layer that is included in the details folder in the complete workflow action. But I digress. This set is gorgeous and I use it not just for newborn photography, but regular old portrait photography as well.
If you ever edit newborn photos you need these actions. I never had the time before to edit every single photo in my galleries to the elevated level in which I can effortlessly and quickly achieve with these actions. They make it so quick and tidy, instead of spending an hour on one image, it takes me 45seconds (and that’s with photoshops infamous buffering time). They have saved me time, and increased the value of my final product. I’m not saying you couldn’t do it yourself and edit your images similarly on your own (save for figuring out Kelly’s washes which I don’t personally use), but I am saying that it is simply not worth your time to do so with every single image, and Kelly has already figured out a system which will seamlessly do it for you. It would take you years to develop a similar actions system that completely edits every single one of your images to the level of perfection and sophistication that Kelly has created with this, if you ever got there. Not to mention you will make back the cost of these actions with the time you save editing one session, I promise you that. Save yourself time, and invest in this and I honestly don’t think you’ll regret it. In my opinion this was worth every penny
I cannot find words to express how great and useful this course is! Probably, this is the best learning investment and the most useful online course I have ever purchased. Kelly, you are an amazing teacher and a very pleasant person to listen to. 🙂 Thank you so much for all the detailed info you explained! Since you are a Canon Ambassador, may I kindly ask for your advice which camera should I get for my newborn sessions: 5D Mark IV or EOS R? I really need your advice , I would highly appreciate it. I am thankful in advance.
This video series has helped me so much! It’s very helpful to see the light placement and camera angles along with all the other valuable information… but the BIG a-ha moment for me was the teaching on proper exposure. I was underexposing too much because I was afraid of blowing highlights. Then, I would spend hours in Photoshop trying to get rid of the awful red skin tones. I would re-edit over and over and still not be happy. Today I paid close attention to exposure and I have beautiful images SOOOO that I can’t wait to edit. Thanks so much, Kelly! Highly recommend this video series!
Thank you Kelly for being so open and sharing all your amazing wealth of experience from the industry, very lucky to now have your guidance for my own business and having your video as a point of reference whenever I need it, is comforting, thanks again.
