Earlier this week, the talented Danielle Neal wrote articles about breaking into the dog photography market and on photographing pets. Today I will show three edits with one of her beautiful dog photographs edited using our Photoshop actions.
For the first edit, I decided to do a subtle look using the Color Fusion Mix and Match Photoshop action. I kept the One Click Color layer turned on and at the default opacity of 75%. Then I turned on Lemonade Stand and adjusted to 25% and Ellie’s Field of Dreams to 51%.
Next I started from scratch. This time using the exact same action, Color Fusion Mix and Match, I created a more intense, toned urban look. I adjusted One Click Color to 68%, and then turned on Urban Revival at 50%, Rustic at 20% and Desire at 50%. This was my personal favorite. I love how it brought the dog’s eyes to life. What an amazing photo. I can almost picture the sounds coming from the dog’s mouth and imagine what he was thinking.
Lastly, I wanted to try a black and white image. For this, I decided on a film like look. I used the Black and White Fusion Mix and Match Photoshop action. One Click B&W was left at the default 100%. I activated Reminisce at 27%, Timeless at 50% and Sunkissed to give it a light toning at 19%.Working with Dogs and Their Owners for Amazing Pet Portraits
