        LOVE this idea! I tried doing the “lawn marbles” when it snowed, but it apparently didn’t get cold enough, so we ended up with ice bowls, which was still pretty cool! My son is going to LOVE this! Thanks!ReplyCancel

        Phoenix Family Photographer- “Converting to Black & White with BP4U Photoshop Film Actions & More!”

        Phoenix Family photographer

        If I could describe my family and child photographs with one word it would be:COLOR! My family and child portrait work is always strongly characterized by bright bold colors.  Not that I don’t like black and white, I really do. I just always feel like I have a more difficult time converting in Photoshop.   It just...

        • BrendenFebruary 5, 2015 - 2:01 pm

          Color photos are amazing but black and white photography just has this amazing mood.It always feels more “artsy”. I think converting an image to black and white removes all the distractions and you can really focus on the tones and subject of the photos. What gorgeous black and white actions they really showcase your gorgeous photography.ReplyCancel

        • Christine DFebruary 4, 2015 - 12:20 pm

          I agree with you…color is so amazing, and your color photography is gorgeous! But a great black and white can be just as spectacular. These actions do look awesome. There is a great variety to fit any feel you want. It may inspire me to go on a black and white kick for a while!ReplyCancel
