Before and After Step-by-Step Edit: Editing Skin Tones and Eyes the Easy Way
The MCP Show and Tell Site is a place for you to share your images edited with MCP products (our Photoshop actions, Lightroom presets, textures and more). We’ve always shared before and after Blueprints on our main blog, but now, we will sometimes share some favorites from Show and Tell to give these photographers even more exposure. If you haven’t checked out Show and Tell yet, what are you waiting for? You’ll learn how other photographers are using our products and see what they can do for your work. And once you are ready, you can show off your own editing skills using MCP goodies. You might even make new friends or gain a customer…. since you get to add your website address right on the page. Bonus!
Today’s Featured Image:
By: Paula Bell
Studio: Paula Bell Photography
Equipment Used: Canon 5D MKIII and Canon 100mm L Macro
Settings: ISO 640 ~ F/3.2 ~ SS 1/100
Software: Photoshop Elements
MCP sets used: Fusion Photoshop actions
Sometimes you can take the easy way out… Some images just pop when you run a workflow style Photoshop action, without doing skin tone corrections and fancy foot work. So if your skin tones look close to begin with try an action from Fusion or even Inspire and see if you still need the corrections. If so, do the work. If not, it’s ok sometimes to skip the set. We won’t tell anyone!
- The details: Used natural window light. Within the Fusion Action set, the Desire Action was ran, along with adding some sharpening to the subject’s eyes. Fast and quick edit with great results!
