LensDay: Playing with Actions

I took some pictures of Lily in the bath the other night, and used them to play around with actions a little in Photoshop.  Here are my favorites, only edited in post with Camera Raw. 






 
This last one I loved because look how green her eyes look!  I thought she was blue-eyed, but not in these pictures.  I used this one to test out a bunch of actions I downloaded from Coffee Shop and Pioneer Woman.  It was really fun to see how they worked and what they could do.  It gave me some fun ideas for future shoots and edits....

The Heartland action is one of my favorites. Do you know how to adjust the opacity? I think you'll like it even better if you move it down to 25% or so. Play around with it. You can adjust the opacity on a lot of the steps in the action totally changing how they look. Email me if you have questions!
