DSisk Photography Colour Medley and Splendor Action Sets | Philadelphia Children’s Photographer

I have met some incredible contacts through the online photography community, and I love being able to support other photographers in their work! Yesterday I got to test out a brand new Action Set by DSisk Photography…it’s so brand new it hasn’t even hit her store yet! I really loved playing with these two sets, Colour Medley and Splendor. The Colour Medley set has some really fun effects, including a whole set of “light leaks” that give your photos an awesome sunflare or old school film effect. And her Splendor set is nice, clean, and classic, with some awesome matte effects to finish off your photo. Take a look at my edits on the same shot, below.

Before and After: Miss M | Philadelphia Child Photographer

Sometimes a little bit of editing can take an image from “ho hum” to magical. I just dug up this photo of my niece from last October and was so happy to be able to save an otherwise underexposed and awkwardly composed shot (my bad…you live and learn, right?). Top is the Original, bottom is the new edit.


Before and After: The Signature Set / Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

After each photo shoot, I come back to my “digital darkroom” to add my own personal touches that can make your images really stand out. As one client put it…this helps to get those “ooohs and aaaaahs” from all your friends after your photos are up on the wall. 😉 Often, I’ll edit each image by hand, to make sure that every individual shot is tweaked to my liking. But sometimes, I love to play with different pre-made “actions” and “presets” created by other pros in the field.

What an exciting privilege to be one of the testers for this gorgeous new set of Photoshop Elements Actions for Marissa Gifford PhotographyMarissa Gifford Photography! I am in LOVE with the soft, warm tones and subtle mattes included in this set, plus she included such luscious sounding names that kept me inspired as I worked (Summer Peach Haze, Rich Sunset, Plum Velvet and my personal favorite…Elemental B/W which includes a whole set of individual layers named Earth, Air, Fire, and Water)!

Check out a few of my favorites actions on this 2012 shot of sweet baby R.

(For those of you who don’t speak photographer slang, SOOC stands for “Straight out of camera”, or my unedited original image)
