Bridal sessions can be fun and creative. A recent trend if to photograph brides in an urban setting.  Using Renee Trichio’s image (Twice as Nice Photography) from when she attended a Private Photoshop Actions Training with me a few weeks ago, you will see that even using one action set, the possibilities are endless. My favorite photoshop actions for Urban Photography is All in the Details set.  It pulls out detail and natural textures from objects in the environment. I wanted to show you how you can accomplish these looks with just one set of actions.  If you also own the Bag of Tricks, you could use the Color Safe Bleach to whiten the color cast off her dress.  It was not done in the photos below.

Here is the original, straight out of camera:

  1. Started with Flashlight – this brightened up the shadow areas of the image.
  2. Next used Hide and Seek – only painted on the seek layer (on her skin to brighten it a bit) using a 30% opacity brush.

Then I started creating specialty looks.  Each time I show you an image, I went back to the base using steps 1 and 2:

    Isn’t this a repost? Did I see this before, or am I stuck in a “Groundhog Day” loop?

    Extreme Colour edit for the win.The others are nice, but this is the most striking of the bunch.

    I love Extreme Color, but I’m also a very big fan of Newpaper BW. I used it on a photo engagement session and absolutely loved it!
