I love photoshop actions. They make life easy sometimes, and they also open you to a world of downloadable artistry. I’ve made a few of my own actions, and I like to create more every day. However, I know when I’m naming them, they don’t always make sense to me. I have an action named “Roman” after Roman Loranc, whose moody black and white shot with red filter make me love cloudy days and intense skies.
I also find that while the actions usually in some way describe what the finished photo will look like, some of the combinations make me laugh.
Here’s my example of irony. I edited this shot of my niece using Pioneer Woman’s Lovely and Ethereal.
Not sure if I would describe this photo with those words…. but I did get a nice laugh out of it.
PS – I hope to be uploading my own action set soon, as a FREE download. Keep an eye out.
