Today I have a brand new action I call "Sweet Vanilla Custard". This action is gorgeous on portraits and still life images and is completely adjustable.
Erika LC Photography posted this before/after on my Facebook page. She used "Sweet Vanilla Custard" and then ran the "Enchanted Forest" action to add streaming sunlight.
For today's tutorial I used two beautiful images from Bloom Photography. I was looking for some beautiful floral images to use in my tutorials here on my blog, and Sam messaged me on Facebook and said I could use some of her images. I visited her Facebook page and completely fell in love with her photography. She sells her prints so if you want some gorgeous wall art please check her work out!
Here is a beautiful image from Bloom where I ran "Sweet Vanilla Custard" and added two textures from Flypaper (Fine Cracks, Distressed Painterly).
CoffeeShop "Sweet Vanilla Custard" Action Tutorial:
This is the original image from Bloom Photography. Isn't she gorgeous?
I ran the "Sweet Vanilla Custard" action. This is the image after running the action, no adjustments. I want to remove some of the effect off her skin.
I used a 50% soft black brush at approximately 50% and painted over her skin on the Vanilla Custard layer mask. I used a 100% brush to remove that layer completely off her eyes.
Here is the final edit. I love the soft tones.
This is the image after I added the new artistic texture I posted this week.
Here is another image by Bloom where I used "Sweet Vanilla Custard" and added my new texture coming out in a day or two.
