Kubota Photoshop Actions : Tips + Tricks

Photography

Today I’m running around my house with one sock on. A toothbrush perched on my lower lip. Aaaaand I’m bumping a little Jay Z to get me motivated for what is shaping up to be a crah-a-zee day. But before life gets too crazy to blog, I decided to put together a post on a subject I’m most commonly emailed about: Photoshop and post-processing. I’m definitely the last person you want to ask about Photoshop (because, really, I know very little about such an awesome tool), but I do know I get a ton of help from Photoshop Actions. Like I’ve mentioned before in the past, I don’t heavily use Photoshop to manipulate my images, but it definitely refines my style.

People often ask if I could post photos straight out of camera (sooc), and while I was quite reluctant, I’m throwing caution to the Santa Ana winds and posting side-by-side comparisons. If this post helps one person, then I’m stoked. I use these types of posts to help manage my time via email, as I cannot possibly answer every email personally. Please forgive me.

Without further ado, here are three sets of photos from my three most recent shoots…
Kubota Fuji Snappit (11%), 81K Warming (60%), a curve bump, and Magic Sharp…

Kubota KevX Process Combo (10%), BW Enrichment (61%), Contrast +1, curves bump, Magic Sharp…

This picture was completed with one of my newest fav action, Kubota Fashion Passion! I love the cooled tones and yet the subtle saturation! Fashion Passion (22%), curves bump, Magic Sharp…
