they are Totally Rad...

So, if you are a photographer you know there are many actions you can purchase. I personally use actions very rarely (besides skin softening), I personally have just always felt like they didn't really help my workflow that much and I felt like they were kind of waisting my time because by the time I figured out what action would work well for each photo I had waisted precious time when I already knew what I wanted in the end and how to acheive it. Okay, bla bla bla, onto the good stuff... I just purchased the Totally Rad Action set and the only reason I did this is because I went to the Image is Found Shootshop and that is what they use to edit. I personally usually like really colorfull images, but for weddings I do like a little more vintage look as well. So I sat down and started editing the rest of this wedding and I LOVE THESE ACTIONS~ There are a ton to choose from too. I think I like the Lux soft, BAMF 8BIT (black and white), beer goggles, and the glowy one, can't remember the name. Anyways, just having some fun. It's nice to edit diferently for a bit. It has been so weird to sit down and have time on my hands the past 2 weeks, I rememeber the important job of being a mom and it's so nice to sit down and really get to play with my kids again. I am never going to work that much again!! I think I went a little insane, now I am back. Although now I think I am a little bored, so weird to go from being insanely busy to watching like 5 movies in one week. I am just looking forward to HAWAII and sporting my extra white sexy skin! Scary!

Here are a few examples of the TRA Revenge set:

These are beautiful and really look nice for wedding photos, but I am just a big fan of your super colorful family and kid pics.

Karen said...

I'm getting ready to buy those too but can't decide whether to get both sets or just the latest set. Which set did you get?

Looks great, but I am a huge Kubota Image Tools fan! They rock! I have all the sets and use them daily.
