Blueprint: Use Photoshop Actions to Add Drama to Your Photos

Blueprint: That Cute, Fast 1 Year Old

After my post on Pioneer Woman’s site about challenges photographing a 1 year old, I got a lot of questions. What lens, what settings, how did I get the b&w, etc… I figured the best way to answer these was in a blueprint. I shot this image with my Canon 5D MKII with the Canon…
