Since I have started my blog, I wanted to talk about Photoshop actions. Actions are tools you can use in Photoshop to speed up workflow. All you have to do is press play on an action set and everything from lighting, contrast, shadows, color tones will be automatically adjusted by a press of a finger. Everything is adjustable within the folder. This will not be a tutorial but a review on this specific action set.
I was generously given the Portrait Perfection Action set from Sleeklens to write this review.
I would love to start off with- WOW! This was such a great action set to be gifted. What I loved about it was that it didn’t dramatically adjust the image. With most actions sets, they really go all out and you have to adjust every single folder. Luckily with these, I only had to adjust the shadows and contrast.
This set is great for any beginner to professional photographer. I would feel comfortable using this set for all of my shoots because the adjustments are very subtle and you only have to do slight adjustments. I started with the Base actions and then moved on to the Enhance Tones actions.
Each image only took me less than 5 minutes to complete.
Here are all of my before and afters from my shoot with Style of Sam.
Here are the exact settings I used in this shoot:
In Camera Raw-
Enable Lens Corrections
Actions used in Photoshop-
Base- From Bright Sunny Days
Color Correction- Natural
Enhance Tones- Romantic Dance
Overall, this action set would definitely be worth every penny. I look forward to using more of their actions. I recommend this for beginner photographers for their first action set or professional photographers that want to speed up their workflow.
