Vintage Chair, Bedroom & Using Actions
Sat 27th, Nov, 2010
whoopee-doo on the Adirondack giveaway! so glad you girls liked it (actually we had a couple of guys too)…don’t forget you can still enter…winner will be announced on Wednesday…just comment and yep all comments til then go in the beach bucket ;-) oh and if you were one of those who haven’t been able to comment on this blog for the last few months, it’s now working…hopefully…
Righto this is a little bit more on photography due to the large amount of emails I had after the last post I did about taking photos
So here’s an action in…action, (you run actions in Photoshop) using some from Florabella, I bought these ages ago in one of the bundle sets, they are not budget though they are certainly worth it (as ever I only recommend things on this blog that I really like)…they are so very easy to use and so very easy to get lost in processing pictures of your kids in…if there were a downside, and this is far from criticism if you use them on your blog they are just so darn popular you’ll see pictures are enhanced with them everywhere…
Anyway I call this playing in actions vintage processing..not sure if that is the real name for it, and it is exactly what it says on the can…it will foof around with your photo so it looks vintagey…a bit like life really….these work pretty much well on any photo that I have tried them on…I have read lots that the original photo needs to be really good…but although that helps, I think that these babies can turn a paltry photo into something much better…
One of the best things about actions, Florabella or any for that matter, is that if you are on the other side of 30, your arms are a little bit tuck shop, your skin is not quite as peachy as a baby’s bot, you have to iron out the crease in your face in the mornings when you rise and your hair is as big as Texas (thanks Rhoda for that new to me saying), well you my friends, although you may well actually feel Retro Vintage, you can actually simply hit retro vintage and all becomes somewhat of a blurry, vintagey, olde-worlde tinged haze…
And yes, don’t even think about asking, my Hunters do live there, most all of the time.
They remind me of England.
I walk in them around the streets at night with Mr BC so that an Australian snake, if it decideds to slither past me will actually slither over rubber from England and not my feet.
Mr BC likes my boots when we go on our midnight walks when I wear them in the street under my dressing gown.
One day I will take a picture of that.
And vintage process it.
Cos that’ll make me look good in Hunters and a dressing gown. ;-)
Happy Weekend where you are
