Mindy's Photoshop Actions: One cute baby

One cute baby

I'm ordering a 24 by 30 of this one, I love it! I took these with my studio lighting along with a giant softbox. I'm really enjoying the lights, and I love that I get such a similar look to natural lighting. I think What I enjoy doing the most is photographing babies and children. Here's a few more... I used my Colorful kick action with these, it works great with my studio shots as well.

I need some help you the actions you are using. Often when I use them I have trouble with the skin looking wrong. The colors are brighter and wonderful but the skin tones don't look right. I am sure I can adjust for that. Can you share any tips. I probably just need to turn something down on the opacity.

Beautiful work! I love your actions.

Hi Laura,
I can't remember if you have PSE or not? If you have photoshop, you just use a black brush on your "color" layer mask to remove excess color from the face. If you have PSE just use an eraser set to around 25% and erase back the color layer.

Hi Mindy! Great pics of that little guy :)

I just purchased your Colorful Actions for PSE, but I don't know where to get them from. It's probably staring me right in the face!

Thanks- Alyssa
