I am suuuuuuuper lucky because I recently received an email from Jodi of MCP Actions asking if I would be willing to be a “try out” her new action set “MCP Newborn Necessities”. UM, need you even ask?! I obviously am totally honored and am always looking for a way to speed up my work flow and make my life a little bit easier. I immediately grabbed an image that had taken me quite a bit of time in the past to get the color right and used the new set she so kindly sent over. Oh my gosh, it was a piece of cake! I literally did nothing to this image but open it in Photoshop, touch up the skin and run the few actions from her set noted below. I adjusted the opacity until they fit my liking and flattened. DONE. Just like that. I didn’t adjust the color beyond that, I didn’t make any massive fixes and the BEST part…it still looks like MY work. It doesn’t look like I ran someone else’s actions on my work. It looks like I managed to make this action set represent Brianne Brose Photography and that is very difficult to do with actions. I am sure you all know that! Once you find your style, it is nearly impossible to use actions unless you created them yourself. Huge kudos to Jodi at MCP for creating an action set that is so versatile, so beautiful and so easy to use. I hope you all love them as much as I do!
