As photographers, we are always seeking inspiration and sometimes we can find it in the most unexpected places. I spend 90% of my photo time photographing for clients/jobs. It is not often that I get to photograph just for me without some end result in mind.
I am excited to start this workflow video at the very beginning with some important lighting tips for capturing your subject. I was inspired by a new tire swing photo prop and wanted to give it a test run. I will share how I approached the lighting challenges for this location and then I will edit a couple photos in ON1 Effects to show you how I completed my inspiration for this session with a beautiful summer finish.
Having a smooth workflow can have a huge impact on the time you spend in post-production. In this video, I want to share my personal workflow for Bliss Studio. I have found faster ways to cull through my images and get them prepped for clients to view. I’ll take you from the beginning of the process, through adding presets, all the way to exporting them out for both web and final prints. It is always good to find ways to improve your workflow as even small changes can have the impact you need.
Watch my first video on Managing Presets for Faster Editing.
Preset Management can be an essential part of speeding up your workflow process. Like most things, being organized can be half the battle. I wanted to share a few tips on how to manage your presets by removing categories you do not need and organizing your favorite presets with quick and easy to find categories. When your presets are at your finger tips it makes your post editing, quick and easy to power through right in browse.
In this tutorial I will share how to enhance the colors to make them pop as well as how to blend or replace the sky. We will start in Develop to make a few exposure improvements and then go into Effects. In effects I will start with one of the new Color Film presets, make a few adjustments and then add a sky to finish it off.
One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to share my love for photography with the team at ON1. As we design, create, build and market I like to help both inspire and grow everyone’s passion for what we do. As photographers we all understand how being inspired can take you to the next level. It can feed your passion for what you love and help you grow.
Today I interviewed a good friend and fellow photographer, Joshua Carter with Life Captured Photography. He is primarily a High School Senior photographer in a small town in Missouri. I have had the pleasure and honor of working with him for many years now and am excited to both interview and share with you guys a little about this amazing photographer.
Holiday’s are always a great form of inspiration. It gives everyone a good excuse to take photos inspired by the holiday. I really enjoy Red, White and Blue themed photos both at my studio as well as photographing my own family. The fun color palate really inspires me, especially when I add in a couple cute kids.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and grandpas out there! It is a perfect day to not only celebrate Dad’s but to celebrate relationships. I enjoy being able to photograph my husband with our kids embracing the things that they love to do together. If you have little ones, ask them what their favorite things are about their dad or what they love to do with them? If you asked my son, Lennox he says giving Daddy hugs (he’s three).
I was honored to be a part of the Spring into Summer campaign and jumped on board with a fun video on High School Seniors. As we head into summer, Senior season is in full swing for a lot of studios. At the beginning of the season I enjoy creating a few new presets, inspired by my first couple sessions. Styles and trends are always evolving as well as my mood can vary when I am editing the start of a new season of seniors.
