If you love deep, rich color popped images, you can achieve this look in a few quick clicks using the MCP Fusion Photoshop Actions.
Hi! My name is Annie of Annie Whitaker Photography. I was honored when Jodi asked me to do a blueprint on this image because I have learned so much and grown in my own photography from reading past step-by-step tutorials. These photos were part of a family session. I wanted the images of the three boys to be fun, modern and colorful.
Consistency is important:
To maintain a similar look with all of the images, I used the same workflow on each to achieve this look. All actions were from the MCP Fusion Photoshop Actions Set.
- I started with “Ellie’s Field of Dreams” with the cool layer turned off, and the “One Click Color” Base turned on which gave the images a clean, crisp look. I selected this action as I love the toning.
- Next, I wanted to brighten up the colors in the picture and add a vignette. To do this, I used “magic markers” at 70% opacity with a large white brush just around the parameter of the picture. Next, I made the brush smaller ran it over the tie, red shirt and blue jeans at 50% opacity.
- I finished editing the images by using the “High Definition Sharpening” action at 75% to make the picture sharp and ready for printing.
