But part of the new found love in photography is the discovery of photoshop "actions". Actions are, basically, a preprogrammed sequence of photo tweaking that, with a push of the button, photoshop will run... and... voila! your picture is amazing!
now, in these pictures, I didn't just stop with the action... I ended up tweaking them all myself afterwards. But it was a lot more simple than it would've been otherwise, and I am so happy with the results!
I love the bright colors and all the details I am able to emphasize with my photos! As you can see, my originals are usually not the ones I post on my blog anyways. And, I cannot tell you how happy I was when I ran across another photographer-lover who also posted her pre-action and post-action photos... they looked just like my originals! (dull and a little life-less)
So... if ever you feel like your photograph isn't all that, don't believe it for a second! I really don't like it when people feel inadequate with themselves... we are all so special and have our own unique talents and personalities. I am really not a good photographer, I am just someone who has jumped off the safety branch and has tried something new.
So... for everyone out there that thinks "oh i wish i could do that!"... guess what... you can! just do it! (and having photoshop doesn't hurt with the whole photography bit)
oh... i should point out that all the pictures are "before photoshop" & "after photoshop" pictures... hehe
