so i have been messing around a bit with some new editing techniques and decided to mess around with this picture from a couple of months ago. I loved how it turned out!
and since it is a NEW YEAR I thought I would start it off with a little bit of GOOD KARMA.
which means, I am giving away a little ACTION RECIPE!
I think a lot of people think that if you use actions, your pictures will end up looking just like everyone elses. I disagree. If there is something out there that can speed up your workflow and make your pictures look fab, WHY WOULDN'T you USE it? And if you mix it up a little and if your original image isn't bLAh, you won't blend in.
here's exactly what I did on this image
here's the original JPG image + a little bit of tweaking in camera raw
note: all actions used on this picture are from the TRA set 2
FIRST (after opening it in photoshop) I ran GET FADED- summer at 32%
followed by BURN OUT at 85%
followed by PUNCH OUT at 100%
lastly (and not leastly) I ran PROSS CROSSESED at 10% to make it just a weeee bit funky. =) oh and j/k this one is from the original TRA
oh, and I cloned out the power pole.
