Boudoir Photography: How to Enhance Your Images with Photoshop Actions

Boudoir photography requires great lighting, flattering poses, and often the use of photo editing using Photoshop actions.  When doing Boudoir photography, you want the woman you are photographing to feel special and beautiful.  And while you still want the photo to portray her, Photoshop can help enhance her most positive traits and minimize any flaws or areas where she is self-conscience. This photo was submitted and edited by Camilla Binks of Camilla Photography.

Here is the before and after Camilla submitted plus how she achieved it:

The step-by-step:

  1. Started with the Touch of Light Free Photoshop action with 20% opacity brush a bit on hair, face near carpet and hand to brighten up skin and select areas
  2. Next I used the Magical Clarity action from the Back of Tricks to increase midtone contrast
  3. Then I used All in the Details- Color Action which pulls out details and pops color of the image
  4. Patch and Clone tool to remove vein on forehead and bags under eyes.
  5. To pull out spot colors, I used the Color Finder Brush from the Bag of Tricks at 20% brushed everywhere except skin and hair
  6. Then I ran the Magic Skin – skin smoothing Photoshop action for a creamy skin
  7. Used Extreme Fill Flash from the Quickie Collection at 10% layer opacity
  8. Finished with Quickie Collection-Snap Photoshop action (I always use this!)
