Seattle Butterfly House

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Yesterday was a full day for Family Activities. First stop was the Harry Potter Exhibit. Nick really enjoyed that--Katie--not so much--too scary I think. Then, we went to the Butterfly House and I think I managed to get a few good shots despite the inconsiderate masses who didn't seem to care when people wanted to take pictures (don't get me started). Anyway, this little guy really liked my husband's cap, cause he decided to stay for what seemed like a long time :D.

I just did some cleanup in Camera RAW and used these actions: Boost (from PWAction Set 1--my fave!), and the Crackle and Bring out the Eyes actions from MCP's Quickie set.
The last stop was the BSG Exhibit at EMP. I got a few shots, but not too great; they had a no flash rule plus the lighting was really dark. I'll post more pictures as I clean them up.


New Photography Course

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I just signed up for the Children's Portrait Photography with Tamara Lackey | It's FREE to attend live. I purchased one of their Photography courses after watching it live; they are excellent! And I'm not just saying this because they are located in Seattle :D

I just love those and all the others that you can get here absolutely free. However, if you are like me, after downloading a bunch of those, I feel compelled to reward all this hard work with a small donation. Join me, won't you?


JHP Action Review - Retouch

Sunday, October 3, 2010

For part two of my JHP Photoshop Actions review--Retouch Lab, I used a close-up up my daughter Katie I took at the playground. One of the few times she actually stood still for a picture :D

I used a number of actions from the set, so I thought I'd list the steps showing how I got to the final image. This set has a number of other actions as well, like beautify and tanning bed, that will be great for dramatic fashion-type shots. There are several skin smoothing and refinement actions, so you'll be sure to find one that's just right for many different looks. As with the last review, hover your mouse over the picture to see the before image. Click here for a larger view.

Read on for the how-to:
