New Kubota Photoshop Actions


A few nights ago–after releasing Meg’s wedding gallery online–I received an email from her. She, apparently, was viewing her gallery when she came across a few photos JD captured. And she began to cry. You see, unbeknownst to Meg, Tim surprised her with a diamond wedding band. He placed it on her finger during the ceremony, but she didn’t respond. Initially. Because she didn’t see it. While I was setting up the group formal, JD was standing off to the side. He captured the moment when Tim pointed out the new ring…and Meg’s reaction.

It’s moments like these I completely adore. And I’m so thankful to have JD on my team. Here’s a few of JD’s candid shots processed with my new Kubota Photoshop Actions. I’ve finally had the chance to sit down and choose my favorites…I love them! You can find these new actions in the Viva La Vintage action set.

TenSeventies 16%
Curves bump
Magic Sharp 44%

Mr and Mrs Feingold seeing their daughter, Keren, for the first time in her wedding dress…
Hot Flashes 6%
VintageTen 9%
Magic Sharp 50%

Erin and Mike just outside Shutters on the Beach hotel…
Chai Stained 7%
Golden Delish 20%
Magic Sharp 45%

Saturation -100
Best Chocolate Ever 54%
Curves Bump
Magic Sharp 60%

Jody wiping the tears from Shannon’s face at the Viceroy Palm Springs…le sigh
Saturation -100

Like I mentioned before, these were all JD’s photos processed with the new Kubota Photoshop Actions. To see archived photoshop/post-processing blog posts, click HERE or HERE for more…

    your 40-50% magic sharp on most of these… that was on the full-size image correct… not the resized for web images? Do you resharpen after downsize for web?

    thanks for the info… great stuff!

    Way to go JD! I love capturing what we think are just great, fun images and then find out there was so much more meaning behind them to our clients 🙂 I’ve had something like that happen where I accidentally left a space in between 5 siblings only to find out there brother that would normally be in that spot had passed away 2 years prior….sigh. The mom called me with happy tears & I’ll remember it the rest of my life!
    Keep up the great work you two!

    im hoping that one day i’d get to shoot with my husband too. he’s expressed interest. for your future FAQ… but maybe you’ve already answered it.. and i’ve missed it. But when did JD start shooting with you? did you ask him? did he ask you? Also did you teach him how to shoot and how long did it take. I just love how you two work together… so n’sync! yes im a boy band girl!
