Before and After
It was like a photographer's dream world with every toy imaginable. It was painful! I wish I had won the lottery this week so I could have gone crazy. The most fun booth was the Totally Rad Action guys. I'd been thinking about buying their actions for a while, and this clinched it for me.
I read a lot of other wedding photographers so I can keep up on the style that's hip right now, and right now brides are looking for artsy stuff, and these actions are the answer. I wasn't thrilled about it because I personally prefer regular old, not over-worked pictures. I like my pictures to look real, not surreal. But I do see why some people like these fun effects, so I figure I'll give it a shot.
And holy heck am I having a good time! Check out some of the pictures I've re-worked. What do you think, better or too much?
And one more that I'm pretty darn pleased with. I think I'm an Action convert...
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
