Resources I use as a Photographer

Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Resources are so much fun for me to make for you, I really love Photoshop and creating things just makes me smile. However, I am first a photographer which is where most of my resources start.
Along this Photographers Journey I have been on, I have been asked a very consistent question...

What resources do you use as a Photographer?

So tonight I am going to tell you, give away my secrets so to speak but they are not really my secrets, they actually belong to some very helpful and creative people that make my job a hell of a lot easier.

First of all, the only resources I ever use on my own work are Photoshop actions, I have thousands of them and that is no joke. Out of those thousands, I use a hand full regularly and now I will share which ones those are.

Let me start with a before shot of my Mikey and I will use his photograph throughout this review to make things easier.



As you can see he is just a beauty to begin with. LOL
But it only gets better from here...

Now, I won't offer download links, instead I will direct you to their websites where you can find the resources that I am reviewing here. 
These are not direct Downloads as some are Free and some are not. 


The first Actions in my line up are from the one and only....

MCP Actions


I must make something clear here, I love every single one of Jodi's Actions, there are just too many to list here but her MCP Blog it Boards, they save my butt daily and the two Actions above are just a couple that I seem to favor.

Visit MCP Actions



Next up, Florabella, now I have to admit, I have just recently tried her actions for the first time but I am impressed to say the least....check these out...

 Florabella Collection

Just lovely and as I try more of her actions I will let you know what I think.

Visit Florabella Collection



Next on this list is Mr. Kubota, how could I have a list without him? I use Kubota Actions a lot but again there are too many to list here so I will share the one I use like..... ALL the time.


These actions are just so quick and simple and I love using them, he really designs these resources with us in mind.

Visit Kubota Image Tools



The above are actions that I adore and use often but the the next two are a part of my everyday workflow no matter what, in some way shape or form I end up using them....

Ginnie Photography...


I just love it, love it , love it!

Visit Ginnie Photography



The last action on my list but not even the least because I use this next one every single time I process a photograph and its my absolute favorite because it is so versatile and easy to use.

Seim Effects


I have tried soooo many actions and no matter what it always comes back to Seim Effects
It's the softness, the color, the way his actions give your work that edge and the ease of using them. 
His resources are my absolute favorite.

So there you have it....the cat is out of the bag.  LOL
